For $1600, get these from newegg/directron

Core i7-2600K ($315)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115070

Asus P8Z68-V Motherboard ($180)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231314

2x4GB G Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1600 1.5V ($65)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231314

Crucial M4 128GB SSD: $220
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148442

2x ATI HD 6950 2GB Crossfire ($480 total)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102945

Corsair HX750 Power Supply ($135)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139010

Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler ($70, quiet and outperforms a Corsair H70 by quite a bit):
http://www.directron.com/nhd14.html

Total=Around $1450 without case or case fans.

I leave the case decision up to you since it's largely down to personal preference. A couple of good case choices are Antec P182, Cooler Master HAF X, Various Lian Li models, etc.

For case fans, get Scythe (Nidec) Gentle Typhoons.

I just went ahead and assumed you need a monitor. If not, save some cash!

anyways, this is what I'd suggest for that budget. 2500k, p8p67 pro, 120gb vertex 3 SSD, spinpoint f3 1tb hdd, gtx 570, corsair ax750 PSU in case you ever SLI, 8gb 1333mhz ram, a cooler master 212+ for overclocking, and a haf 932. You could grab a variety of cases but I personally like the haf series

I chose the monitor because it is an extremely good IPS panel for its price. It uses the same panel as the dell ultrasharp series which are renown for their good panels.

If you don't need the monitor, disregard that suggestion and save the money!

No.

6990 Costs $700 but its performance is the same as two 6950s in Crossfire (which costs $480 ish total). 6990 is only worth it if you must have a single-card solution.

ATI is currently better than nVidia for graphics. The 6950 costs less than the GTX 570, performs about the same, and draws a LOT less power.

Quick questions, why the 2500k instead of 2600k? Why the 570 instead of 580 or 590? Also I heard nvidia gets pretty hot. =/

But with 2 6950s, don't you need more wattage? Also, what about 2 6970s?

2500k performs exactly the same as the 2600k for gaming. Unless you encode video the 2600k is not needed.

the 570 because a 580 and 590 are massive overkill for 1080p. I'd even call the 570 a bit of overkill for 1080p but it fits fine in the budget.

graphics cards in general get pretty hot.. haha. You don't have much to worry about. If you're really concerned, grab a 6950 twin frozr III and overclock it a bit. Then you get 570 performance and good temperatures

So from what I understand, the 2600k = 2500k with speed, they just slapped on the words i7 on it. But does a 580 or 590 pack more of a punch than the 570? I want to get something where I don't have to upgrade in a LOOOONG time and can run games in the future with no lag, like BF3 and skyrim.
