Thanks for the list...it helped a lot! I have some questions about it though.. Also, my budget is not set in stone. I just don't want to spend 2k on a computer.. You suggested one of the motherboards I was looking at. Going to go with the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 here
With the way this build is looking, would it be worth it to get an i7 with hyper-threading support (whatever that is..)? I plan on keeping this computer until it goes up in smoke. It's only like, 100$ more..

I was comparing the GeForce GTX 560 Ti to the HD 7850 series. The Radeon is about the same price, is much newer, and seems to have better specs. Am I missing something?
