This is my first system I will be building. I want it to be able to play the modern games like BF3, Crysis 2, Skyrim, SWTOR, and others. I need advise, to make it work. I am in the US, and I have about $1800 grand to spent. SLI, I don't know what that is. Please help with this computer I want it to be faster than my old one, which was a dell and very very slow. Okay this is the parts list.

This is quite possibly one of the most mis-matched builds I've ever seen - ditch the entire thing, there's nothing I would recommend on it. On a $1750 gaming build - that much RAM and a SSD with that kind of capacity will be completely useless, and if you're expecting that a G630, H100, and GTX 550 will max out BF3 that's pretty near impossible. And I wouldn't trust $1750 of components with a $12 junk unrated and non certified PSU with a 10 foot pole.

Here's how you spend $1750 on a build:

Case: Corsair Carbide 500R - $139.99 ($10.00 MIR)
PSU: PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKII 750W - $109.99 ($20.00 MIR)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H - $199.99
CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - $239.99
Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 - $85.99
RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz 1.5V - $49.99
SSD: 128GB OCZ Vertex 4 - $129.99
HD: 2TB Samsung Ecogreen F4 - $119.99
Optical: LG Blu Ray Burner - $79.99
Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 670 FTW - $419.99 ($10.00 MIR)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99

Total: $1,682.89 - $40.00 MIR = $1,642.89

Use the difference and buy whatever keyboard and mouse you want. This build will max out any game you can throw at it for years, a GTX550TI and G630 won't.

You need help!

g-unit1111 beat me to it, and saved me some work! I like the suggestions; we could quibble on only minor details.

When you post your revised build, include a description of the part, as well as the links. Most of us are lazy.

For a first time builder, download and read the case and motherboard manuals, cover to cover.

It's definitely better than the first build but Cooler Master has a really horrible reputation in the PSU department, the H80 isn't needed when the D14 will give you the same results and is far safer, and you still need a secondary storage solution with an SSD. The 3770K is only needed if you're going to be using applications like Adobe CS5 or After Effects where hyperthreading is needed - on a gaming system the extra features will be useless.
