Default Great to Harcore PC build

My first time building a PC so excuse my Nooby question.

1. What YOUR PC will be used for: I'm going to use it for games, picture editing, and a little of rendering(Blender)

2. What YOUR budget is. My price range is $3000 maybe up to $4000 if need

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from: USA East Coast

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. Not really a fanboy but I rather have Intel and nVidia

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts: Not going to use any part, this computer has some hardware problems, and some what old.

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.
No conclusion so far

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
I would like to over clock the cpu to a stable 4.5 or so.

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
Plan to build it around December

9. What resolution and settings do you use?
I'm not really sure on the resolution, I'll need help with that I do wish to have 3D.

What I would love to have:
wifi n, SSD , all-in-one memory card reader, Support up to 3 3d monitors
