Default High-end MITX Build

Dear Canucks

Thanks for taking your time and reading.

1. PC will be used for gaming, music, movies and browsing.

2. Budget is,with your help, less than $2,000

3. Buying parts from Newegg US, shipped to Saudi Arabia. Recommendations other than Newegg are appreciated.

4. No brand preference.

5. intend on using my Speakers/TV , and already have a wired gaming mouse and mech. keyboard for serious gaming. Also have one PS3 Dualshock controller that I plan to install with motionjoy driver.

6. Have searched and read similar threads, even wrote about it. I just want other experts' opinions.

7. Plan on overclocking.

8. I plan to build it now. I said this 3 months ago but, but I waited a while. A deal stopper would be Seasonic releasing a 500W+ fanless PSU or Nvidia/AMD releasing a 2nd gen 28nm video card before the year ends. I'd wait for those.

9. What resolution and settings do you use?
HDTV= 1080P @60hz. Settings have to be @ max.

10. Are there any specific technologies you want?
A filter to annoying questions.

Edit: updated after your feedback. Thank you Canucks!
