+1 deltas build is better an deven this $500 build would perform at least as well http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/budget-gaming-do-it...
Th eproblem with your build is the CPUs only good point is the intergrated graphics which you will not be using

Your mobo is AM3+ while your CPU is FM2 so they're incompatible. Also that PSU is far more than you need.

The suggested build above is better, tho with a B75 board overclockability may be limited to non-existent.

Deltas build with a z77 board he just suggested is a better idea than the B75 board in his build. The only other downside to it I can see is its got a very good CPU and a medium range GPU. If you are not going to upgrade the graphics card in future a slightly cheaper CPU with a cheaper H77 board and upgrade the graphics to a radeon 7950 would be a better option. But if you got deltas build with a crossfire capable motherboard and in a year or so got a second 7850 thats even better.

OMG!!! please explain like you are explaining to your grandparents about something new please. so doing deltas build would be a good build for long time gaming before i replace my parts or will it be yearly.

The second edit of deltas build is an amazing spec for the price and will last for years without any upgrades.
