MB: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... M5A97 Socket AM3+ 970 ATX AMD

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ModXStream Pro 600W Modular

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint 500gb

DvD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... LG DVD Burner

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Case: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


Now the main thing that I want out of this build is to be able to play GW2, D3, and Skyrim maxed out. BF3 (and others) medium and up. Will all these parts work for that? and anyway to cut the fat to save some bucks? Thaanks!

Yes, it will all work nicely. What size screen do you use?

As of now I want to use my 32" HDTV, but later on I want to get a 1080 monitor

Yes, a 6870 will put out the graphics performance that you need for a single monitor. I have a 6870, and can average ~40 fps on BF3 with most things turned on on a 1920 x 1080 22" monitor.

I'd swap the PSU to a Corsair TX 650 and pump up the GPU to a 7950. However, that build is close to mine and it will certainly push those games you mentioned. By maxed, you may have to drop the AF/AA down a bit.
