Default bf3, diablo 3 and skyrim build

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.

Main purpose is gaming bf3, diablo 3, watching HD movies and general browsing etc...

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread


3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.

US i have a fry's microcenter newegg with in driving distance

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.

i wanted to build a BD system but with the reviews im going to be going with SB every thing else is up in the air what ever gives me the best performance in gaming

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.

just my logitech G5

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.


7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.


8. WHEN do you plan to build it?

with in 2 weeks

9. What resolution do you use?

im currently looking at the HP zr2440w or zr24w

cpu: 2500k $179 microcenter
mobo: asus p8z68- pro $169 microcenter
case: corsair 600t white $169
psu: corsair hx750 $147
hd: HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.D HDS721010DLE630 $69
ram: 8gb corsair vengence $49
gpu: im not sure if too buy 2 6950 and crossfire them or get a single gtx580 about $500
monitor: ill be sticking with single screen for now HP zr2440w or zr24w but im open to other options i would really like a 27" but those might be out of my price range. $400
cooling: h100 or h80
keyboard: razer black widow or corsair fps board $129

most if not all the parts I'm able to drive and pick them up i might buy a few things from amazon no tax! and newegg has will call. im looking to build a system thats going to last a while possibly upgrade to sli or crossfire in the future.

Thanks for looking any help is appreciated
