Hello,
I'm trying to build a computer from scratch for the first time, I want to be able to play most new games on the highest settings with a steady FPS within the price range of about $1300-$2000. I've got parts in mind but being my first time I don't want to buy them to find that they don't work. Here's what I have;

- ASRock B75M-R2 (Motherboard)
- Intel Core i5 3570K (CPU)
-OCZ Fatal1ty Series 550W Modular (Power Supply)
- CoolerMaster K350 Gamer USB 3.0 (Case)
- Seagate Barracuda ITB ST1000DM003 (Hard Drive)
- GeForce GTX 680 (Graphics Card)
- ASUS Xonar DGX (Sound Card)
- Kingston HyperX KHX16C10B1K2/16X (2x8GB) DDR3 (RAM)
-LG GH24NS90 24x SATA DVD-RW Drive OEM (Optical Drive)

That's what I have so far. I don't think I'm missing anything but if I am please tell me. My question is whether all of this is going to fit together and if it does, will it be able to do what I want it to? Also if there is anything that can be upgraded while keeping within my price range.

the performance difference between a 670 and 680 is only marginal and does not justify the price..so don't worry about it..
