Here are my current finalized specs... with the price , and a explanation to why I picked it.
My total budget to spend $2500
Computer Case - Newegg.com - XCLIO 777 Black/Titanium Finish Chassis: 1.0 mm SECC; ABS Plastic ATX Full Tower Extreme Cooling PC Case - Computer Cases
Individual Price $180
Combo with a Power Supply $280
Why this one? I am big on looks/design when it comes to computer cases, I know there are lower priced cases that probably can give me the same thing, but I really like this one for several reasons..
#1 The titanium finish
#2 It's black color
#3 It has 8 fans
#4 it looks like a futuristic alien jet engine
#5 Great combo price
Power Supply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-020-_-Product
Individual Price $130
Combo Price $280
Why this one? I like to buy a PSU that's the same brand as the case, because it's a personal preference of trying to keep everything to match up without any issues. Here are a few other reasons...
#1 880 Watts my computer will be needing a lot of energy
#2 It's black and fits the with the design of the case
#3 Great combo price
I am buying both of these for $280 as a combo pack, i personally think it's a good deal.

Do I need to say more? I need a beast PC.
CPU - Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Individual Price $290
Why this one? Just been told this is a really good processor, and since these days games take up a lot of CPU power, I am looking for the top-tier processors. I also do a lot of rendering and 3D work , so this will help a lot.
Sound Card - Newegg.com - HT | OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Sound Cards
Price - $80
Why this one? Not sure, just decided on this one cause of it's decent price, 7.1 sound and positive reviews... If you know a better card that's not too expensive or around the same range please say so...
Motherboard - Newegg.com - EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Individual Price - $240
Why this one? Positive reviews, I like the black/gray color scheme fits with the case/computer. Has 6 slots for Ram memory, and seems to be a really good product according to Newegg. Also, it has a really decent price in my opinion. Any suggestions always welcome though
RAM - Newegg.com - G.SKILL 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9T2-12GBNQ - Desktop Memory
Individual Price - $290
Why this one? Need 12 gigs of ram to fill up my motherboard to it's full potential and also because of rendering. Heavy scene rendering with tons of polygons requires a ton of ram, so might as well...

$260 also is not really bad at all in my opinion. Any suggestions welcome!
