Intel 3770k for the processor and an Radeon HD 7970 or GTX 680 for the graphics.
8 GB of ram or more, make sure it's got a speed of 1600 or better and timings are around 9-9-9-24 or lower.
Get a good motherboard aswell. ASUS, Gigabyte, or MSI will do you good.
Get a corsair or a seasonic PSU.
NTZX (not sure if I spelt that right) makes good cases aswell.

make sure you use a damn good cooler for either one of those CPU's - corsair H series ( H80 and up ) - they are some of the easiest water cooling setups to use. just a few screws.. no adding chemicals of any kind and they are an all-in-one kit for CPU cooling.. best route if you want the best.

cooler master v6 or v8 also works well.. or any thermaltake air coolers..

I will be online tonight if you want more advice on teamspeak. plenty of us have built machines before
