Overview: I will be ordering parts of Newegg only. Hopefully, I will be able to buy everything in the next three weeks.
I already had a post on making a rig but I just want to be sure because that was a while back and maybe things changed. (It wasn't too long ago, but still)

I just want to make sure that all of the parts I will be buying will be the best I can get my hands on for my budget.
I know I will have intel core i5 2500k.
Other then that, I am still a little confused on what parts to buy.
Can you guys please help me find a build that will be perfect for gaming at around my budget.
Most to least important tasks for this rig: gaming, videos, surfing the web, school work.

Note: The OS will be Windows 7.

Please change the RAM . Kingston HyperX Ram is rated at 1.65 volts , Intel CPUs work optimally with 1.5 volts RAM
Suggestion: (mobo + ram)

OS has $15 off with promo use that.

Do look into this CPU & PSU combo :

Change the GPU to that of Sapphire . PowerCooler is considered an unreliable brand .

OK, changed to G.Skill sniper. Thanks.

My list is just a suggestion. I would actually look for combo deals and other specials before choosing the actual parts I would buy.

No guys I do not need to have a monitor, kb, or mouse.
The OS should be included in the price.
So with that said, should the builds have any changes?
I am thinking that I should go with one gtx 570? Yes or no?
