Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP7 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
Video Card: Not Certain.
Memory : SSDs
PSU:PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk III Series PPCMK3S1200 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
RAM: G.SKILL Ares Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Water Cooling: Not sure exact components because this will be my first pc build and therefore first WC attempt. I want to do a bay reservoir and pump combo think just a 240 in the bottom and maybe depending on video card maybe a 2 block loop.
Case: Storm Stryker

I am doing all of this on a budget and just going to slowly acquire parts. First will be case and then Mobo and CPU. But case first so I can mod it to my liking. I am going to go Orange/Black/White theme. I am going to sleeve my cables. Replace the power led with an orange one. EL Wire the front and LED Strip the top. Could I put that all on the fan Controllers LED control? Or would I have to put a different switch set in.

Any Opinion on Video Cards or any input in general would be appreciated. I am planning to not buy Video Card or SSDs till I am ready to finalize because new product comes out so rapidly.

Not sure how this comes 'on budget' but it seems your quite aiming for a powerful pc. not sure if i can't read it or not, but what CPU are you planning on getting? and what kind of GPU do you have in mind or how many to be exact if you plan to go for a motherboard that can take 4 GPUs. Do you plan to overclock? Is it for gaming?

On budget as in becoming a parent soon so can very rarely get a part here and there. Not just get it all at once. Probably overclock some and mostly gaming/home theater in a way. I run a iMac currently for audio production and would like to separate my production from my play. It will be a hobby build. CPU I am up in the air about, don't know if I want to go Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge going to look into it more. The video card is probably my last buy because those change the most rapidly.

CPU well you really buy what you plan on spending, I think everyone will just recommend the Core i5 3570k. Its a solid CPU and at a good price, everything you need for gaming. See how pricing goes and what you need,

I am waiting for tax return/work bonus/B-day money to get this rolling. The board is mainly so I have options and can upgrade and work with what I have as much as I can. I have been looking into folding a little.

just wondering why you want a 1200w psu, you wont even be using 500w @ load, peak efficiency is @ ~ 50% load capacity on the 80+

imo save some cash and buy a smaller one

also i dont know if you have noticed but to my knowledge vid cards are not being produced as fast as they were a couple years ago.... it seems like more the processors are being updated faster

I would also keep WC for a second build, if this is your first build, I think you have enough worries to fill your head...

Personally, I would watercool the second build or third once you've got scratch building down.

I'd recommend a 7850 and a 3570k would be a good build, but once a budget is given is when we can really get to work.

If you really are on a budget I have several suggestions for you so you can get it up and running a lot faster since it'll be a lot cheaper.

Go with the 3570k, it's all you will ever need with gaming. I only got the i7 simply because I work on HD video editing from time to time and was not on a budget. I built a rig for my friend with the 3570k and he has no issues keeping up with my in OC'ing or in gaming fps. Save $100.

You will not need a 1200W PSU, not even with SLI. Video cards are a lot more efficient now and these PSU's are for extreme builds nowadays. Save yourself $200 and get this one. I own this one and it's a great! Handles everything I have plus tested it with SLI with no issues.

I don't know what your plans are on usage but unless you are running VM's there is no need to get 32gb of ram. Most people say 16gb is way overkill but really it's a happy medium since prices are low now. You can save another $100 by going with 16gb.

I would skip watercooling until you have your system running and it's to your liking and you've also figured out all the parts are good, I'm a veteran builder and I still don't see WC'ing as a cost effective way to cool things down for the most part. I'd rather stick the extra $500+ into a second video card or something.

+1 to what he said. really it seems like your building up to a big rig when in actual fact it doesnt seem you need it at all.

To give you an idea

CPU-i5 3570k
GPU-If you really plan to buy later, see everything then but otherwise gtx 670/gtx 680 or HD7950/HD7970 for some highend gaming
