As far as motherboard, the ASRock Z170 Extreme4 is probably the best value for you what you get:

Case, right now probably one of the best cases to build in is the Corsair Air 540:

If you are going with a 970 or an AMD equivalent probably best to stick with a high refresh rate 1080p panel:

Lastly, I would replace the 840 Pro with a modern Crucial drive like the MX200:

This should bring your total to: $1795.81

So a bit under $2000 thumb.gif

Thanks for the input.
I finally got it figured out thanks to everyone who gave their feedback.

Might wanna grab some extra case fans. I moved the two stock 140mm fans from front to top and bought three 120mm's for front; you'll benefit with a 390.

also the 3200c16 RAM may be pretty much the same price as 3000c15 and is a little better

This one is more than "decent"

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1098334-REG/aoc_led_monitor_g2770pqu.html

144Hz, 1080p, 27-inch for only $300

One more thing, do not buy a 550W power supply. While your power requirements might not mean you need more than 550W. It does not necessarily mean, only buy a 550W power supply. If you ever want to go SLI or Crossfire that means you have to replace your entire power supply and all your connections just to add in a second card. Which is pointless.

Go with at least 650W minimum.
