My System Specs

Default

Asus is definitely a good name for mobos, it may be worth considering MSI, (lots cheaper, I'm using the P67a G43, for about a month now and works great so far.)

As far as CPU and GPU, one thing I've heard is to try to avoid "bottlenecking" ie both GPU and CPU should be about the same power (best guess is to just pay the same for both). Then again, FPS and racing, I think, are more GPU intensive than RTS, so perhaps paying more for the GPU would make sense?

edit: In the end, most anything will work reasonably well, high quality PSU, other good parts and you'll be fine, you just have to DO IT!
