maybe use a different psu, this is a better choice

700 watts is way more then you need for this build and save you a few dollars.
if you could try to get atleast a gtx 660. thats the lowest recommended card today for gaming and other then that you should be set

Everything but the power supply. That's cheap and unreliable and bigger than you need anyways. Just buy a reliable 550w-600w power supply like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168....

Also, do everything you can to fit a more powerful graphics card in there. I would rebuild the system to use an i5-3350p and h77 chipset motherboard to save money, drop the optical drive, and buy a cheaper, mid tower case.

It works but you are spending to little on the GPU compared to CPU and board. Also cooler master PSUs are not the best and even if you get a better GPU (I recommend at least a GTX760) you only need a 500W power supply if its a good make.

+1

Also, an AMD option would be something like a M5A97 R2.0 MB + FX 6350 for even less than a 3350p or 4570. You could even OC the 6350 if you're so inclined.

Okay, so I understand I was missing a lot of information and I'll try to correct some of those now. If possible, i'd like to spend under $900 and would preferably use an intel CPU & Windows 7 Home premium(I think thats the cheapest one). I live in Toronto, Ontario. It's also my first time and I was just trying to piece together items I thought would be a good fit. I'd like to run games like Diablo3 and COD Ghost without lack of fps (i plan on playing mmorpgs in the future like Blade&Soul and Cabal 2 and was hoping I would have sufficient frames) and I think i'll go with a Seasonic SS-500ET 500W

3350p + better GPU would be good for all of that. So would the AMD setup as well. You cannot go wrong with either one.

RAM Patriot Viper 3 Mamba black 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHZ 74.99

This is what I would get if I were to be building a gaming PC today and had the same budget.
