Since you got the money to burn, get a badass video card like the GTX 690 or Titan.

I want something that can run most games on ultra graphics and something that will have crazy fast RAM. I dont need the best, but I certainly dont need the worst. I am using this as a learning process as well. What would you guys suggest?
Before you buy anything, I'd suggest checking with the boarding school to see if you can have that there. Also if they have network connections in the dorm rooms and what you're allowed to do on their network.

I will only use for school work and gaming. I will not torrent (at least not on their network). I have thought this through and I was considering getting my own wifi. The best computer in the world is shit without wifi.

Planning on dropping 400-500 on both the processor and the video card

New blu-Ray player. Now all I need is the graphics card. no need for the Titan. I need something that is about moderate level of performance (since this is the thing I will be upgrading most over the time span I will have the computer)

In that case, either a GTX 660 or a Radeon 7870 would be right up your alley.

I'm not sure, but I don't see a motherboard? Can't really be 110% on those components without having a motherboard chosen.

Any ways, as soon as your put together your PC it's going to be out dated. The market is increasing at lightening speeds these days. One day you'll purchase something and then two days later they'll be something bigger and better than what you put together.

That doesn't mean you have to upgrade you computer every two-three years. I've had my build running games at med settings for over 5 years now. My video cards are nVidia 9600GT. One recently just burned out, so now I only have one installed and still running. I've had these cards for 7/8 years.

Build it to last, not to upgrade. Remember, pick out a motherboard first.

edit:
maybe you want to look into a full tower instead of a mid tower. Plenty more room to work with. Plus increased air flow. especially if you're looking into a graphics card like the titan.

The mother board link is the same as the cpu link.
My Intel DZ77GA-70k board is the cat's meow. Fast and lots of connection goodies. Even comes with a BT/WiFi attachment. It'll handle that i7 cpu chip.
