I want to play comfortably on high with the newest games and be future ready for a good while too, maybe some games on ultra , but high and ultra to me don't make much difference since i'm comming off consoles. This is about a 900 doller build so i don't want to go over my budget. My first build to. Any tips would be helpful. I play all games, rpgs, fps, racing, etc. prolly a 22 inch tv. highest resolution. dunno yet.

In my honest opinion I would scratch out the sound card and change the PSU for something more well know for quality

This would do well but also include an after market cooler since your overclocking I suggest getting the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

His build is somewhat better than yours and saves more money to tell you the truth XD but I'm not sure about 500w and the 7850 is better (IMO) than the 560ti.

It's only 10 dollers more than my current buiild, i'll really have to look at the review of all the parts, i don't know too much about each individual piece.

7850 > 560 ti for the money
You PSU pick is iffy.

Otherwise all is fine. You can skip a CPU cooler for now if you want to save money.
