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.

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.
