Okay so here is the build i have worked out:

CPU: Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB

PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified

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

Motherboard: MSI Z77a-G43 LGA 1155 Intel

This is my first PC build so I really want to make sure that all this stuff is compatible with each other. Also, if anyone has suggestions I'm completely open to them, but i CANNOT spend anymore money than this. Thanks

My budget is absolutely no more than $670. Not including a monitor, hard drive, keyboard or mouse because I already have those.

Good deal, everything will work fine. In future, if you will change your processor i3 to i5 or i7 then it will work much better.

Another question: Does anyone know how well this build would run Arma 2?
