Hi I'm building my first computer with gaming in mind, and I wanted to make sure my specs were ok and that everything was compatible. I've done some research and based on wht I found this should be able to run most games on max settings at a good frame rate, with maybe some exceptions. Also I will be running at 1920x1080. I dont currently plan on overclocking but may choose to do so in the future, and also would like the option of expanding to dual gpus. Here are the parts that I am planning on getting over the next few weeks.

CPU: i5 2500k or i5 3570k

Mobo: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68

GPU: SAPPHIRE 11200-00-20G Radeon HD 7850 2GB

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)

SSD(Boot Drive): Samsung 830-Series MZ-7PC064B/WW 64GB SATA III

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache

PSU: Corsair Enthusiast TX V2 Series 750-Watt 80 Plus Performance Modular Power Supply

Case: NZXT Guardian Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Case 921RB-BL

I feel pretty good about this build after doing a lot of research and was just being cautious, hopefully if I missed anything compatibility wise someone can point it out. Thanks!!!
