Hello once again!

Previously I asked about my power supply, thanks for the quick responses, but now I'd like to ask for tips about my soon-to-be PC's configuration. Please keep in mind the followings:

Budget: approx. 650 +/- 25 $
What for: mostly the new releases, like Watch Dogs, Mirror's Edge 2, Dying Light, Far Cry 4, etc.
What I keep from the current PC: case, power supply (500W), CPU cooler, RAM (4GB), hard drive (500GB), system fan (120 mm), monitor (LG L246WHX)
Bulding time: I'm planning to build it during this summer

The planned configuration (drumroll):

- Kingston 60GB SV300S37A/60G SSD
- Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 KHX1333C9D3B1/4G RAM
- Asus P8B75-V Motherboard
- Intel Core i5-4670 CPU
- Asus GTX750 Ti 2GB DDR5 GTX750TI-PH-2GD5 VGA


Thanks for the assistance!
Have a nice day! :]

*UPTADE!*

Altough juanjovargas suggested the i3 CPU (despite it won't last for more than 2 years), I think I'll stick with the original i5 plan, but with the i5-3570 one (lot of you suggested this one in other threads), so here is the (hopefully) final configuration:

- Kingston 60GB SV300S37A/60G SSD
- Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 KHX1333C9D3B1/4G RAM
- Asrock Z77 PRO3 Motherboard
- Intel Core i5-3570 CPU
- Sapphire R9 270X 2GB DDR5 OC Vapor-X 11217-00-20G GPU

(The CPU and GPU were selected by other forums and www.game-debate.com tests.)

Any other tips/ideas will be considered!
Thanks again! :]

I think you have a pretty nice upgrade for your components, but let me tell something! You are going to waste 220$ in your CPU and 114$ in your video card. If you'll gonna use it for gaming, you have to focus more on the GPU, so I would propose something more like this:

Intel Core i3-4130 3.4GHz Dual-Core: http://pcpartpicker.com/mr/superbiiz/intel-cpu-bx80646i...
Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Vapor-X: http://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/sapphire-video-card-1...

Both costs 320$ like your i5 + 750 but I think you will get much more FPS while you play, even more if you play new releases :D

I just picked the i5 because I'm planning to keep the configuration for at least a couple of years, but thanks for the tip! but with the i3 cpu, i need to choose a new mobo, the Asus H81-PLUS sounds ok to me, but if you or anybody have another suggestion, i'm eager to hear it. :)

Well, thats 2 years playing with less fps! Maybe you're afraid of buying an i3, but I really think that with this budget you should try to focus more on the GPU!

Build is great, if you have slight room in budget try and get a 270x around 30-50 more and preforms as well if not better than a 760. Another reason I recommend a 270x over 750ti is in the future you can crossfire but the 750ti can not that is its downfall.

I'm aiming to build a PC that will least for 5 years before an other mayor upgrade, and lot of my acquaintances suggested that I should go for an Intel CPU and nVidia GPU. I'm currently using an AMD Phenom II ×4 956 Black Edition CPU and Gigabyte HD 7770 GPU combination, but it won't be enough for my future gaming plans. Not at least my Mobo (Gigabyte 78MLT-S2P) can't endure some games, because BF3 killed it at least 3 times already. All in all, I think I'll stick with @juanjovargas i3 CPU idea, but I'm still not quite sure about the GPU. I would be pleased if you could recommend me an nVidia card as well, along @dominirican3351 270× idea (I'm thinking about the MSI GTX660 one). Many thanks! :]

That's an old-generation CPU but I think its much better than the one with the GTX 750! Finally if you can get the 270x with an i5, it would be your best bet!
