Go for the new Sandy Bridge 2500K i5. It has very good reviews. You could also look at the ASUS P8P67 Pro MOBO and NVidia GTX 570 or 580. You need a good power supply and I would suggest 800 W for this set up. 8GB of RAM would also do the trick as well.

hi, thanks for the advise. i realise i went about this thread the wrong way now, i should have suggested my intended build and then asked for improvements, rather than expect members to supply me with a build!
