Hello everyone so i want to build a new gaming computer since i think mine is a bit rusty :D 
I got some bad English so hope you understand me.
And i need to run games on max with 1920x1080 resolution
Right now i Got:

Video Card:Radeon HD 5670
CPU:Intel Dual CPU E2140 1.6Ghz(OC. at 2.4Ghz)
Memory:Corsair Dominator 4GB(2x2GB) Ram DDR2
Motherboard:ASUS PSLD2
Power Supply: Atx-450W

With this setup im preaty much running Most games on Medium i played BF3 and Call of Duty II Black OPS on medium/high
I'm looking into playing future pc games and online mmos at high/max with 1920x1080 resolution .For example im running Low/Medium Lord of The Rings Online(with no effects and anything).

The computer shouldn't be to expensive so i put a budget should at about 700-850$ i guess cuz even that is quite a lot for me.
Well basically i want best parts at lowest price that could get the performance i need.
So far i made a little setup myself dknow if its any good or not cuz im new at building computer so need a bit of help
this is what i got so far, if u can make some changes or adds or anything to improve price wise/performance wise please do ;)

The Gigabyte GPU is superior. However, if you're just playing MMO's then the 6870 will play them on Ultra with no lag. The 560 Ti is overkill for your needs.
RAM is overpriced. Can find the same kits for $40-$45.
The FX is mediocre. If you live near a Microcenter, you can get a 2500K+Mobo for $230 together. However, if you don't have one, get the Phenom II x4/x6. A lot better than the FX.
Keep the mobo.
PSU is overkill. A nice 500W from Corsair will do fine.
Case is good, but you can just as good ones for less.

Well, I can't think of anything. Do you live near a Microcenter though? If you do, you can get Intel i5 3570K and mobo for the same price!
