Please review my list for my next build and let me know of anything you would change im looking at 1500 total for everything including shipping, that includes keyboard, mouse and monitor i also threw in a large mouse mat. anyways just look at the key components, main use will be gaming at 1920x1080. eventually would like to add two more of the same monitors but not sure when. i would probably add a second 7950 before then too. primary game play is WoW so i do need my NAGA!

You could go on an Intel 3570k build with this kind of money. Included cheaper G.Skill's, the NZXT Havik 140 which is a great and dead quiet high-end cooler with a very good value, the Caviar Blue WD10EZEX (which althrough being a BLue is WD's best consumer drive since it has a single 1TB platter), the Plextor M5S (it's a top-tier SSD, on par with the Samsung 840), the Gigabyte HD 7950 which comes at a great price and is one of the best custom cards, the Corsair 400R which is a great chassis, the Corsair CX600 v2 which is sold combo with the case, the Dell U2312HM e-IPS monitor (much better checkout HardwareCanucks review), a mechanical keyboard which is the popular CM Storm QuickFire (this one has MX Brown switches, my personal pick!), and the Logitech G600 which is a MMO mouse and better than the Naga IMO (see this thread).

EDIT: fixed the Intel variant.

Have you seen the HD7870 Tahiti LE cards? Available in PowerColor PCS+ Myst and Club3D HD7870 Joker or the VTX3D HD7870 Black which is owned by the same company as PowerColor
Oddly performs like a 7950 and possibly better for much cheaper why? It's clocked at 925MHz unboosted and memory is at 6GHz (QDDR)
Only problem is at high resolutions it suffers a little due to the lack of a larger bus (256bit only) but the best part? It outperforms a 660 Ti by a little bit which is priced like a 7950

If you don't want to save, then skip this. But i'll say you'd rather save some money

The best OC-able card is the VTX3D card, followed by Club 3D
the myst+ runs the coolest amongst them all, although 71C stock isn't what you call remotely cool

if your biggest worry is wow I would just go for something like this flex card and xfire when u add monitors for eyefinity

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102996

its not the highest performing card... but you will pry enjoy the flex option of not being forced to use display port

with that saved 50 bucks you could upgrade cpu cooling or MB if you want. that 7870 should do you well OC it and you have a 7950 or better

OK here it is and as for the naga i have used the naga for about 3 years now and will NEVER touch an mmo without it. lol it just feels good and the logitech version which i originally considered for its color scheme just doesnt look for comfortable to hold for long periods. Anyways let me know what you think. The main changes were. GPU and Motherboard although i did switch ram to the "blue" colored sticks and added a usb network adapter to hide in the cases top panel.

future plans are fully sleeved PSU as i usually do going with blue/ white. Followed by a full water loop, and then adding another 2 monitors which may come before the loop since i want to snag the panels before they go bybye.

Also i do play FPS games as well just primarily focus on wow. but i do own BF3, Blackops2, crysis 3 was free along with bioshock but i plan on finally finishing metro 2033. I also play Diablo 3 when im sick and occasionaly will hop on SC2 to play a custom or get my booty rocked in matchmaking lol.
