  1. Change your processor http://ark.intel.com/products/65511/Intel-Core-i5-3450-Processor-(6M-Cache-up-to-3_50-GHz)
    Change your motherboard http://greenboxit.com.au/product_info.php?products_id=32129
    Change your hard disk to 7200rpm and a 128gb ssd
    Change your case to the 902. It has refinements
    Downgrade to 750w gold
    Upgrade to a gtx 670
  2. I disagree with the above post. If you are gaming all you need is an i5 but I would get a 2500k or 3570k as they can be overclocked. I have the 3570k and love it. If you do get a z77 motherboard like the asrock z77. I have an asus sabertooth z77 but thats a bit overkill. I do agree about getting a 128gb ssd and a 7200 rpm hard disk. as for PSU stick with the 850 and get a gtx 670. the 850 will give lots of wiggle room for a 2nd 670 down the line and enough power for anything you add later to the rig. (I.E. fans, lights, liquid cooling, pcie inputs usb etc etc) also I am a big fan of nice large cases. http://www.amazon.com/Antec-Fleet-DF-85-Gaming-Computer/dp/B003JH7MIO/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1345803336&sr=1-2&keywords=gaming+tower is a wonderful case for just a bit more.
