  1. You're spending way too much on that motherboard. I can gives you a new list of recommended parts, but first I need to know what you plan to do with your computer. Gaming (if so, what games on what graphics settings)? Video editing? Etc.
  2. Mostly gaming some internet and thats it. Mostly COD or battlefield and the video card breaker-minecraft :lol:

    Here's a few money savers to have a look at. It might put you into a 7850 or 560 ti.

  4. You could do much better. Check out my $650 build here:
    http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore
    Windows 7 (A+ BBB approved site based in Utah): http://www.softwaresupplygroup.com/microsoft-windows-7-home-premium-64-bit-oem-branded.html

    Better CPU, better GPU, and you still have more money to spare. With the spare money I would try and get up to at least a 7850. Would suggest overclocking as well.

  5. Ok, check out this list I made.

    Differences are:
    Intel i3 (plus a good intel p67 motherboard) rather than an AMD cpu. This is because you can get better performance for about the same price (and you also have a good upgrade path).
    A solid state drive as your primary drive. You'll thank me later :). If you want a regular hard drive in addition for more storage, I can adjust the build to fit into the budget.
    The GTX 560 SE is basically a highly overclocked version of the popular GTX 460: it's very quiet and performs really well for what you're after. I still use the actual GTX 460 on which this is based, and I can run battlefield 3 etc. on max settings without issue.
  6. Alright thanks. How about this, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/e7kH

    I guess I could make a couple extra bucks for it, and I have windows 7
