Looking to build my first pc that I will use primarily for gaming. I have been INCREDIBLY indecisive on what parts I want to get lately so I just decided to let you guys post what you think is the very best possible gaming build for 700 bucks. Please bear in mind, that 700 is an absolute max. As in I don't have any stretch room with an OS bumping everything up to 800 dollars. And no I will not pirate it :p . But yeah, don't worry. The OS doesn't need to be included in the 700.

Okay, let me start by saying what I hope to accomplish, and then you can be the judge of whether my expectations are too high or not.
Anyhow. I would like to be able to record Minecraft with a 256x texture pack, and record Battlefield 3 at high settings. I realize I won't get ultra and that's fine. But high would be nice :)  And of course, like I said, I will be recording these so fraps will be running at the same time.

Any advice, suggestions, and builds you would like to share are very much appreciated! And thanks for taking the time to click on my post :D

Sounds Easy Enough,

Corsair 300R - $80
Seasonic 520w PSU - $60
i3-2100 - $110
Asrock H77 - $80
8GB DDR3 Vengeance - $30
Radeon 7850 - $250
Seagate 500GB HDD/HYDD - $80
DVD Burner - $20

~$700-720 Dollars, I would reccomend going 8GB Ram and play around with some of the options, you'll hit $700 and some 7850 cards have rebates so with the rebate you can save $15 so you'll gurantee $700.

Alternatively, upgrading to an i3-2120 would be good as well. 8GB RAM is nice, but not necessary (but nice).

altay's build suggestion looks pretty strong, and if youre not scared of refurbished items, newegg sells a gtx560ti 448 core for 220 with free shipping. not quite as good as a 7850, but i just got one and i love it

Thank you so much! This does look like a fantastic build. Just to be certain, is this the motherboard you mentioned?

It was the only H77 one under 100 bucks yet its still 10 dollars cheaper than the motherboard you mentioned.
