Hello

So I'm trying to build pretty much a gaming computer for $800 or less or a little more if need be. I just want to mainly play games on high graphics. Playing on ultra would be nice but not really a must have thing.
I haven't built a computer in years, and this is what I've come up with so far. Don't really know if this is a good build or not, or if there is a build that is cheaper and will still preform at high settings for upcoming games.
Resolution that I play at is - 1920x1080
Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks ahead of time.

You are in OK shape minus the PSU. Stick with Antec, Corsair, XFX or Seasonic. Squeezed in an SSD in the build below...

Why would you pay that much for a 270x? This build gets you the same CPU, much better PSU, and a better GPU - GTX 760.
