I want to have a good computer under $900 or a little bit over... just to play 2012 games at high or almost max graphics at max frames, if possible.
******I WILL NOT BE OVERCLOCKING... I'm a newb.********
------------I also want an above-average soundcard--------------
Case : Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ( I am willing to spend ~$80 for case of higher value

MotherBoard : Not sure... Asrock z68 elite or w/e... I'm not really sure about the Z77 because I won't overclock. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

CPU : Intel i5-3570k. (Not really sure how to overclock so...) http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

If you won't overclock get the i5 2400 for much cheaper and you can get a cheap h61 motherboard. Difference isn't really there unless you overclock.

you should be able to grab 8gb of ddr3 1600 for $42 on newegg.

swap the ram, the 6gb is probably tripple channel or something and will not run on dual channel losing you performance, make it 2x 4gb or something in multiples of 2.

I think you should consider something more powerful than the 560, maybe the 560ti or back to the 7850. I think both are better choices than the 560.

How's this? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9bI1
And should I get a OCZ AGILITY 3 SATA III 2.5" SSD? Not sure how it functions. (TBH I know nothing... I don't know how to install any of this.)

an ssd would make loading much faster for anything you install on there, its definately worth it if you have the money just for general use. Loading windows in 10 seconds is definitely something useful.
