Core i5-3570k if you want to overclock, non K version if you don't. Asus P8Z77-V LX would be my mobo pick.

I might be in the market for a new desktop myself -- so watching this all with interest. Last desktop is a few years old so pretty sure I'm going to start from scratch on this one and donate the old one to a friend in need (it still probably can run everything I want to use it for so definitely good enough for the friend, just want something that can do all that at max settings again!)

What graphics cards are we looking at these days for price/performance? I'll admit generally in the past I've been more a fan of AMD/ATI -- but it seems from browsing stories they're on the ropes these days.

And the other silly question is, how much and which type of RAM anymore (DDR3-1066 all the way up to 2666 -- which one is the value point at)? I've really let myself out of the hardware loop, used a laptop for the last year now to game on.
