CPU: AMD Quad Core A10-6800k 4.1 GHz

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2048MB GDDR5 128bit, Dual Dual-Link DVI, Mini HDMI, Graphics Card

OR

XFX Core Edition ATI Radeon HD 7850 860MHz 2GB DDR5

Motherboard: MSI Socket FM2/AMD A75/DDR3/SATA3&USB3.0/A&GbE/MicroATX Motherboard FM2-A75MA-E35

RAM: Kingston Technology HyperX 8 GB (2x4 GB Modules) 1600 MHz DDR3 Dual Channel Kit (PC3 12800) 240-Pin SDRAM

Hard Drive: WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive: 3.5 Inch, 7200 RPM, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache

Optical Drive: Asus 24x DVD-RW Serial-ATA Internal OEM Optical Drive DRW-24B1ST

Power Supply: Antec VP-450 450 Watt Energy Star Certified Power Supply

Monitor: ViewSonic VA2246M-LED 22-Inch LED-Lit LCD Monitor

Case: I actually need some help with this, I don't know what would be good enough to fit these parts if they work.

OS: Windows 7 SP1 64 bit

This is the first time I am building a computer and to my understanding, these parts should work together, but then again, I haven't done this before nor do I know a whole lot about computer parts. I need someone experienced to give me some input so I can know I am getting what I want. What I am looking for out of this system is medium-high to high settings gaming at 1080p 60fps. I am on a budget and can't really afford to spend more than about $950.

Do not buy that processor, It is an APU which is a low end CPU with decent integrated graphics. Change it for the Athlon 2 x4 750k or 760k.

Everything else looks good. Get the 7850. It is much better than the 650ti.

Alright, I will go for the 7850 and the 760k. The only reason I had the 650 on there was because I was talking with someone earlier and they said to get that over the 7850. I assume the motherboard is fine after a few moments of research. The only question now is what case do I get?

Yes, that motherboard will work fine.

The 7850 is much better than the 650ti. Here is a comparison: http://anandtech.com/bench/product/778?vs=781

For the case, look at Antec, Rosewill, Corsair, Coolermaster, NZXT, Fractal Design, Bitfenix

I honestly wasn't sure if the power supply I had chosen would be enough or too much, but it seems to be okay. Thanks for the help, I would prefer it if my first build were successful, and now I am pretty sure it is exactly how I want it.

My girlfriend uses an Antec VP-450 for her computer which has a 7850 in it. It will be perfectly fine for your computer.

Post your final build so I can make sure it is perfect.

That might be a while from now, depending on when I am paid. That, and I don't know how to build a computer. I was told it was as easy as following the instructions, but there was no way, at the time at least, to confirm or deny that claim. Don't worry though, I will post it when it is complete.

I'm talking about just the list of parts, not the final built computer.

Building a computer is very simple. Here is a video showing the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_56kyib-Ls

Looks good to me. I would get win8.1 simple because it is faster. Plain and simple.

Ehh...I may go with Win8, but I will save that decision for when I go to buy these. Thanks for your help, maybe now, my mom won't doubt that this is an achievable feat.
