My System Specs

Default

The 17 950 is getting a little older but will do you fine for what you use it for and decent price.

Pretty much all the rest of the recommendations these guys made still stick except that you need a triple channel memory kit instead of dual...so either a 6 or a 12 gig kit.

I'd go with this: Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL @ $76

Also, I'd go with the better power supply ern88 suggested. the AX series are pretty much unbeatable.

Last thing is cooling. Noctua UH12s were on for $50 last time I looked...good option for air cooling.
