If you have a Micro Center nearby get the 2500k there for $180 and $50 off any Intel mobo. The latest AMD and Nvidia offerings will be MASSIVE overkill. The GTX 680 by nvidia is a BEAST and quiet. Get a case with a door (quiet) that comes pre-lined with sound absorbant materials and quiet fans. The Fractal R3 fits that description nicely. Get an aftermarket heatsink as the stock Intel one is GARBAGE; either something with a PWM enabled fan or just a quiet one like the Noctua's would be great. Get some more Noctua fans for the case too. You can get 16gb of low voltage ddr3 1600 ram for $80 or so (again overkill) and a 60gb SSD for $60 after rebates: Patriot Pyro on newegg. I can help with more specifics if you need.
