Default PC Build Help. Noob Here! First post.

Hello guys. I'am coming from a car forum (r3vlimited) this is my first post. I'am a complete noob when it comes to this. When people start discussing pc set ups it's seriously like a foreign language to me. Hoping you guys can help me over here! :)

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.
My PC will mostly 90 percent be for gaming. The games I play are Counter Strike, Starcraft 2, DOTA, HON, BF3 and maybe get into Diablo 3. I'am a college student so once in a while use it for Microsoft word, Power point etc. I want this PC to run all my games really smooth at possible max settings?

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread
My budget is 2k-2.2k Somewhere around those lines? this includes all necessary components to run the actual PC, Mouse, Monitor, keyboard, OS everything.

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.
U.S. specifically

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy,
Not to sure but i've heard Intel is the way to go?

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.
I wanna start Brand new everything

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.
Ha lets see what i know. or what i have heard. I5>I7 intel processor for gaming. Dont get top of the line stuff. Gaming tech changes every year and price difference is craxy for best set up to second best set up.
umm more memory the better. trying to max out on a 32gb memory? that about it?

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.
I have no clue what that means.

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
I have nothing together and a family friend will put it together. He's alot older then me. Always busy I called/texted he never replied to me about what to buy. But im sure if I bug enough he will come to put it together lol.

9. What resolution and settings do you use?
No 3d. but i'd like to run everything in max graphics if that makes sense?

10. Are there any specific technologies you want?
I read that getting a SSD is really good for a nice set up. Um I5 is the way to go and I want to max out 32gb memory?

These setups was what i was thinking..
(forum member told me I would get flamed and not to buy bundles lol)
what do you guys think?
If you have any suggestion try to keep @ tigerdirect? they have financing :)

GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H Intel 7 Series Motherboard and Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz Quad-Core Unlocked CPU and Kingston HyperX Red 4GB Memory Module and Kingston HyperX Red 4GB Memory Module and WD Bundle at
