Post Limit:
Im looking for suggestions of parts for a pc rig. This will be my first rig and it will be primarily used for gaming and streaming exclusively. I normally game up to 16 hours a day. The games i play range from SC2-BF3-dragon age - minecraft - civ 5 - wow - tera - guildwars 2.
Budget is around 2.5k.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi Fate! Logical Increments is a great site listing down particular detailed computer parts basing on a categorized budget (www.logicalincrements.com).

prefer high settings, would like to stream at 720+ (if not higher), im an nvidia fan boy, but i have heard some good of the amd cards. Would like to overclock as well (unsure of how to, will have to get someone to help me with it)
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/EuMM that is overkill I feel. That hits your "budget" I would say RAID 0 the kingston hyperx drives and SLI with the graphics.
Even has a 27.5 inch monitor in the setup.

First build you might not want to do with a raid and SLI setup. Just one of those cards and one hard drive. The liquid cooling is not hard to install at all. Here is a lot cheaper and will still play the games extremely well:
