They have surely fixed it by now, but I had a ton of problems when I put an ASUS motherboard with a nVidia GPU. And I've heard that the i-5 doesn't agree with an ASUS motherboard either. Just wanted to let you know.

The nVidia and ASUS problem was resolved from what people have told me, and from what others have told me, the ASUS board and the i5 processor is compatible because the ASUS board is a newer version.

Check out amd cpu based systems.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106009

That's a great cpu and it's cheap.

The gpu you choose is a good one, has good benchmarks.

Here are some links to the components that i am going to use for my next rig here soon.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811553002

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16813128514

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814125418

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16819106009

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820231489

That all comes in under $800

I used to be a big intel fan boy but amd has some good products out right now.
