Additional Comments: I would like to be able to run most of the games out there, including ones like Crysis, The Witcher 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Starcraft II, and/or Battlefield 3 at max settings (or close to that, if a budget of $800 isn't possible). Someone over at the GameSpot forums actually said that he/she got these parts w/rebate for around $770 and was able to run every major PC game at max settings, so I don't see why it is impossible for me to be able to do the same.
Here are some of the parts that another person recommended to me to fit this budget (assuming that the rebates take care of it all):
Edited the first post. Graphics card now included. Please let me know if everything that I listed above for a $500-$800 budget is possible. If it isn't possible, then I'd really appreciate it if you could give me an alternative that will fit that budget pretty well, while still being at max settings.
everything is good but the motherboard, get a z68 board with pcie3 slots. its not necessary but its available so why not.
Thanks, but I would really prefer if you can find a better set of parts to fit in with my budget ($500-$800). It doesn't do much to help me if I only have to be paying more money than what I originally had been shooting for.
You can save some money on the case, and you can pick a cheaper 560 ti. There are a few in the $210-220 range if you look in the right places. Otherwise, you already have a good baseline gaming computer.
