I did see the high end poll but I didn't like any of the builds mentioned. This build needs to play BF3 everything maxed flawlessly. The 2000 needs to include 1080p monitor, mouse, and keyboard. I was thinking dual 580s and a p8p67 deluxe mobo, and also the mothership of the HAF X series. Also thinking water-cooling because I will over clock. Any build ideas would be much appreciated! Oh and obviously i5 2500k

sounds like a sick build. what if i didn't need windows 7 an had that extra 100 bucks though? what would you put it on? also thinking about just getting a 64GB SSD i dont need that much room
 
@ the OP... I would recommend mjmjpfaff build but with a few changes. This case down below is new on the market and twice the case of that Silverstone imo. It has a built in multiple fan controller, better cooling/airflow, etc... It just came out on newegg a few days ago and it's going to be a hit.

For some reason that P67 board seems to have less bugs than the Z68's. They just did a bios update with those Z68 gen3 boards two days ago and I read on the forums that it took care of a lot of issues.
