Will you be overclocking the CPU and/or GPU?

If you're getting the Core i7 2600K/2700K or preferably the cheaper Core i5 2500K, overclocking is practically a must to get the most out of the CPU. If you're not interested in overclocking or have no experience doing it, then get the Core i7 2600 or Core i5 2500.

Everything listed will work just fine but I'd get a HD7970 if you're also interested in overclocking the GPU. If not, get the GTX680. Adding in a 60-120GB SSD as the OS drive will be quite an improvement, if you could afford the extra.

I'm not quite certain about Aerocool's fan speed controllers but I do suggest something from Lamptron, FC5v2 or FC6. Preferably something with knobs to control the speed as touchscreen speed controllers can be a little bit difficult sometimes.
