Help vegetto build an epic pc

Alright so my brothes gonna buy my current gaming pc for 800 bucks, with that extra dough I'm ready to build me a beast machine. I'm talking best of best here. so lets throw together a pc with the best crap available, and if (probably will be) its above my available price range the we'll slowwwly work our way down.

when I say best I mean mobo, ram, cpu, gpu. Tower and psu doesn't need to be.

I'm out right now (on my phone) so I can't shop around at the moment, and besides I'm not up to date on the latest stuff.

Helps appreciated!

If you want best of the best just go to each section on newegg and click on type of part you want and most expensive to cheapest. DONE!

10 points if you can figure out which is the more powerful video card.

The only thing I hate about the OCZ PSUs are that the cords are huge and they take up quite a bit of room, even if they do come out, you can't reroute them like other cords. If you're not going to SLI/Crossfire i would go with something else.

Not that it's bad, I just don't like the way they make the cords. But this one has it you can take out the cords you're not using so it might not be that bad.

Yeah if you can remove the uneeded cords then it shouldnt be a prob

looks like that mobo has been having probs for a lot of people, 20 percent of the reviewers have had to send theirs back

might want to wait until the new i7 motherboards come out. the current ones are buggy, overpriced, and hard to find.

Power supply you chose is way too weak. Go for nothing under 700. Get an 800 prefered. If you're after the 560Ti line then you go MSI. Thats the best one of the lot. Though I thought you said you were going to get the best video card. Thats the 580.
