Hello everyone, Dusty here!
So I've been meaning to build my first computer for a bit now, but I'm still very iffy that I'll be able to do it.
But anyway, I've come up with a list of computer parts with the help of some individuals on this forum (thank you so much for that, you know who you are).
Here is my part list:
(please let me know if you know ways to improve it but keep it under $750, and PLEASE let me know if some things aren't compatible).
Thanks.

Anti-static wrist strap and thermal paste will also be bought.

The total is $719.93, with a $45 mail in rebate. Therefore, the price is $674.93. I am willing to spend up to 90 bucks on a Mother Board.
This computer is also for gaming. I want to be able to play games on medium-high settings with this rig. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

Also, if you have a better build than I do, that is cheaper/same price and will have better/the same performance, please let me know. I am ordering the parts within 2 days. Thanks again.

To me personally,the processor is really good(someone will come in a while suggesting an Intel processor like usual).

r0aringdrag0n told me recently that the radeon hd 6870 is good and this is only one step below, so this should still be pretty good.

PSU is fine.

Memory is fine(It's CORSAIR)

MoBo:So I have recently picked the parts for my build and this one looks pretty good and it is cheap:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The case looks good and the power supply is mounted in the bottom(although personally I would go with the HAF 912...But that is just personal preference)

The others...I cant really tell you about since I'm not that much of nerdy guy.

Thanks for the input (doesn't matter if you're good with computers or not, it is much appreciated). I really like the MoBo you showed me. I am definitely taking this one. I also chose this graphics card instead of the one I listed:
SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
