If you don't mind providing links such as newegg and completing the build with EVERYTHING I need, including all the wires, etc to custom build it, that would be very helpful!

Also what do you find faster, AMD or INTEL and NVIDIA or ATI. Also, SSD/HDD (which is better for gaming), and which clocked speed for memory is the best?

I'm not one for intel, I will try. Someone more qualified will help you out I bet.

=/ I just want to get the best I can get for $1600. Fastest performance for gaming with no worries about overheating problems.

It's all about how much you are going to spend. I personally, with $1600 would build a Thuban Rig with a 990fx board and get 4 gpus, AND OR get a proper water cooling loop. But that is just me.

I never really learned what water cooling is. Do you have to refill the water every x amount of days?
Also 4 gpus..? Which gpus?

get a top exhaust case with bottom mounted power supply

get a Asus p67 pro motherboard or the z68 version of this motherboard

2500k

spend at least 100 dollars on a reliable power supply

MSI gtx 570 twin frozr III

1 video card is fine, if you need 2(u wont) buy it after you have built sytem

8 gb 1866 ddr 3 memory

128 gb SSD (windows boot drive)

WD black series 1 tb hard drive (games)

WD green series 2 tb hard drive (storage)

blu ray drive

a nice tower style cpu heatsink

2 nice 120 mm fans (1 for backup)

you shouldnt have to spend 1600 bro, 1200 dollars should be fine
