I am building a new PC for gaming and home use. i would like for the to run Battlefield 3, Arma 3 ( I know the specs were not released yet), Red Orchestra 2, Battlefield2 on high setting with a decent framerate.

Approximate Purchase: Summer 2012

Budget Range: $800-$1000

GPU: NVIDIA GTX 660 $319

CPU: Intel Ivy Bridge 3750K $225

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600

SSD:p lextor M3 Series PX-128M3 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) $189.99

I heard SSD is supposed to drop to 1GB per dollar

i know I am still missing a Mobo because i do not know how to pick out those things. if you guys could help me out with that it would be great.
I also still need a case and drives and stuff but those can be gotten later.
Thanks for the Help in advance.

Come back in a couple of months once the parts are actually out. It's not worth choosing some parts over others (the 660 over a 7770, for instance) based on speculation.

Hard to comment on products that do not exist yet, so I won't.

However I will say that the tall ram will interfere with most aftermarket heatsinks used for overclocking.
