i5-3450
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GIGABYTE GA-Z77M-D3H
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ASUS 24X DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$462.95

This build is solid imo, if you want you can shell out $20 extra for the i5-3570k for a little better performance, but I went with the 3450 since you are not overclocking. Also, this is all pretty overkill for a 57xx card, so if you can return it I can make a better build with a more powerful Graphics Card. :p

Thanks for your recommend, I just notice that you include the DVD burner as well which is not needed and I prefer to get as much ram as possible. Please check my updated post above ^^! thanks

Mereuth is right, your gonna need to rethink that GPU.

I wouldn't worry about 16gb of ram. 8gb is more than enough for gaming. You can always add more later if you really need it, but you won't.
