Alright I'll throw a system up for you. With my last system being Intel / nVidia I am going to create a list based on intel/nvidia with an option ati gfx card. I will be omiting the following items from the list since it is either ascetics or personal preference, case, hard drive, optical drive, operating system.

All prices and parts are found on newegg.com

I'll get the Graphics Cards out of the way since I'll show you 2 good cards IMO (one nVidia and another ATI)

First off is the

XFX GX295NHWFC GeForce GTX 295 It will run you about $510.00 Per Card You can use this card in a SLi or Tri-SLi Setup
2nd Card is
HIS H587F1GDG Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) about $400.00 a card or (since it's out of stock) Anything under this sort

Now on to the CPU
Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz

You really didn't set any specific amounts of ram so I choose 6gb (unless you want more)
CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

For a PSU I've had good luck with corsair. If you plan on doing tri-sli or serious overclocking of the rig I recommend something 800watt+ I personally have their 1000watt model (which I am going to suggest)
CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX 1000W ATX12V 2.2 This will handle anything you throw at it and more.

I know I've left off a few components (listed above) But they are more of a personal preference components. I could suggest a 160gb HD but you may want more. And cases for me, just plain black solid steel no plastic where as some people will want a pretty case.

And for an Operating System I highly recommend Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I hope my list helps you in the direction your looking. I'd suggest take a look around newegg.com come up with a system that you want and we can tell you if it works or not. And/or make suggestions to help you out.

Why Overclock a Computer?

The primary benefit of overclocking is additional computer performance without the increased cost. Most individuals who overclock their system either want to try and produce the fastest desktop system possible or to extend their computer power on a limited budget. In some cases, individuals are able to boost their system performance 25% or more! For example, a person may buy something like an AMD 2500+ and through careful overclocking end up with a processor that runs at the equivalent processing power as a AMD 3000+, but at a greatly reduced cost. why dont we do this ?

It is a good system. I would get a 2nd hard drive for data and other misc files. I haven't had any experience with any i7 systems so I can't say on overclocking on them or not. Everything there will work together.

Depending on when you want the system you may need to choose another graphics card since it is on back order.

Since you are buying I7 975 EE I'm guessing money isn't a problem so you should buy SSD (Solid state disk) for your OS and for HDD buy WD Black.On good air cooling I7 975 goes easy on 4GHz.As for graphic card buy ATI 5890!

Well with this components you can play any game you want with no trouble.Yes it is extreme for $3000.Since you want Extreme you should wait for i9 Cpu and there is a new graphic card Ati 5970.With this i9 cpu and this card it would be a beast of a comp. And you should check this Extreme PC before buying.

Honestly it would be good to wait and when that i9 cpu comes out you can buy everything else thing is that maybe some new motherboard, graphic card could come out in the time when i9 is out.Nvidia should lunch their new 300 series soon too so if you want to wait for i9 cpu you should wait for everything else too well it's your decision and let me know if you are able to build this cpu by yourself because if you are we could change some components.
