Approximate Purchase Date: Anytime

Budget Range: 600 to 700 I know shipping my push it over some.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing Internet

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No Preference

Location: City, State/Region, Country - AL

Parts Preferences: I would prefer Intel, but being on a budget it seems like AMD is the way to go.

Overclocking: I'm only going to say no because of my lack of knowledge on overclocking.
SLI or Crossfire: Again I have no idea what this is :pt1cable: 

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: I do have an extra 500 Gig HDD in my Media PC I'm not really using. So I could just use that to save a little more.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I've just recently strayed away from console gaming. Mostly been playing MMOs like Eve Online and War Thunder, but I have full intentions of playing some newer PC titles as they come out. I'm just tired of playing everything in low resolutions.

This is probably the best you are going to get. You might want to switch to an AMD card if you want but not much difference. IMO I would pick an AMD fx 8320 as your cpu as it will save you $50 and it kills the 3570k. You could also go a bit cheaper on the GPU to stay in your budget without sacrificing much performance.

For the GPU get a 7950 and you will save $40 which will keep you in your budget.
