If this is to be built in May, wait for the LGA 1155 motherboards to come back in stock and go for a Sandy Bridge (Core i5/i7 2xxx) build. Grab a solid Asus or Gigabyte motherboard, drop your PSU down to a quality 750W unit (Corsair comes to mind), lower your RAM to 4GB or 6GB max. Also, unless you plan to be conservative, grab a mechanical hard drive for your User folders and files, and dedicate your SSD for games/applications.
