For SLI I would rather get a 750W (at 12v rails) PSU

noooo go AMD FX-8150 crosshair V formula, nvidia geforce FX5200, nah scratch that,

-i5 2500K
-ASUS z68 mobo
-corsair ax850 850w psu or seasonic x-850 850w both of these are 80plus gold psu
-seagate 1tb 7200rpm hdd or 500gb 7200rpm hdd
-samsung blu-ray(if can't add this on the budget go with)/lg/asus 24x dvd/cd combo something drive
-g.skill ripjaws X 8gb (2x4gb) 1600mhz cl9
-corsair 600T (or something get the white one its awesome)
-cooler master hyper 212 EVO for cooling,
-amd 6850 from sapphire is great, price/performance if not go get gtx560ti twin frozr II/OC 1gb from msi

these should be good for you

btw psu and case are things you would not want to be cheap about, if things go up in the budget, either try to get more cash or go lower with the case, but i do advise that case it's awesome, and for psu just go grab some seasonic or corsair 80plus gold 850w psu and your all set even with future sli or crossfire and whatever else you add in your system

BF3 on ultra needs more balls then what any $800 system can give

OK so after some research i pick the following parts:

Intel core i5 2500k
EVGA Nvidia GTX 560ti
Gskill ripjaws 8 GB ddr3 1600MHz ram
Corsair 400R case
Corsair cx850 Watts psu
WD 500 GB hdd
Lite on DVD burner


Im confused for a good motherboard for my price.
Sorry for the late reply,my old pc is dying.

Would be much happier if i see an AMD build.

Thanks
