This is going to be my first build and I'm looking for something that can run everything out there including BF3 and Planetside 2 at max with at least 30 fps for about 900 dollars. I'd like the price to include the OS and monitor if possible. Any help is appreciated!

I made no compromises in gaming.
You have near perfect CPU, near perfect VGA and overkill PSU for a healthy overclock.
IPS 1080p monitor
I would add a Blu-Ray writer and consider a 256GB ssd instead of a HDD, but otherwise this a PC that i would build for myself. I accept suggestions on case and mobo since my picks are more suited to a 7850+ i3 3220 build than to a 3570k+7950.
