Im looking into making my own gaming PC, and heres a list of what I want thats in my price range (for games like BF3, crysis, etc...) :

-ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
-NZXT M59 - 001BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
-Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
-CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
-BIOSTAR B75MU3+ LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
-Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120
-Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
-Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB DDR3
- CoolerMaster 750W 80+ Bronze Certified

This is what I have made on Newegg.com for my price range. This all amounts to a whopping $750. However, the PSU and GPU are already in my current system, so really its only $500 without those two.

Why not go for a i3 3220? Ivy bridge; faster, better efficiency.

You could save 10 bucks maybe on cheaper ram; it'll perform the same if it has the same latency, and ddr3 1600.
Looks good though.

Upgrade the CPU to a Ivy Bridge, and get a better Graphics card. Get a AMD ATI Radeon HD 6670 if you have to for about $90. Its better than the graphics interface you have in their.

How could a 6670 be better than a 6870?!
