Don't think I'd ever pay for an extreme from Intel. Definitely not in my budget.

Edit: you'd definitely want to wait before getting a 2011 as there will be a new architecture/chipset soon for ddr4 support, new sata port, and native usb 3.0

nVidia just released the new 750 gfx cards. Low price and low energy consumption.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...view,3750.html

If I would need to set up a system it would probably look like this:

- Socket 1150 board (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI) that supports PCI-Express 3.0, USB 3.0 and SATA-III (6GB/s)
- Intel chip socket 1150 (either i5 4440 or i7 4770)
- DDR3 1600 8GB ram (Kingston, etc.)
- MSI GTX 750 Ti Gaming OC
- Be quiet power supply
- WD 250GB SSD
- WD 1GB HDD
- Toshiba 1GB USB 3.0 ext. 2.5" HDD

Price matched my CPU (i7-4770k) with Staples with the Micro Center price over the phone for $249.99 vs $379.99.
