Smile Help Needed for New Build.

Hi guys, i'm new here but i'm in need of advice... I would like to make myself a new computer ( my Athlon x250 + 9600 GT is starting to get old )

1. I want to use my PC for Gaming, and gaming development ( I use Unity Pro ) .

2. My budget would be around 2000 $

3. Canada

4. I prefer NVIDIA, I prefer WD, i prefer AMD but if you really have a good deal with Intel... Maybe i'll move on.

5. I'll reuse my blue-ray reader. That's it.

6. I never really overclocked anything... I would run it at default speed.

7. I would use Full HD resolution.

8. I would build it in the next month ( or in 2 month. )

9. No need to buy any software.

Can you help me by suggesting me some kind of build and where should I buy it for the best price possible ?

Thanks you very much.

My System Specs


With Ivy in a few weeks, my main suggestion would be to wait till it's out and ask again.

For the build generally you'll be good with an i5 or i7xxxxk (do oc it's really easy these days and gives a fair performance boost)
16 GB ram (assuming your rendering / compiling)
GTX 680, nuff said
get a decent sized SSD for current work, (128-256 GB) and put the rest on something like a WD 2 TB green (I would suggest 2 storage drives and duplicating your work)
650 watt PSU (seasonic, antec, corsair,xfx, (one of the seasonic built ones) if you only want 1 card, get 850 if you ever plan on going sli
Case as per your needs, (I always likes the corsair carbide 600t LE white)

that should put a big hole in 2k, feel free to save where you want etc
by the time your looking to buy there should be custom designed 680's and lower versions of the 6xx cards out along with IVY.

NCIX price-match makes it a really good option and from what everyone here says their service is top notch.
