It seems that my budget won't be $800. Instead $600. I made this build for $600 (I'm pretty sure i'll forgot about mail in rebates) and I think it's enough. I only plan to play games like call of duty and battlefield with anti aliasing only at 2x, medium-high settings and I think it'll be enough to give me more than 50fps on average with those settings(I'm satisfied). Well here is what I plan to build, give me any suggestions and what you think of it. :)

Without mail in rebates it's $590 ish

I do plan to upgrade my gpu in the future, but this is what I seem to be as a good start off.

The 'CX' series aren't considered the best that Corsair make but, yes, it's plenty for the system you have in mind.
