Hi.

I'm building a PC with $1200

I pretty much need everything.

All the necessary parts, Peripherals (mouse,keyboard), Monitor.

It should be 1200 dollar with tax and shipping.

I plan on playing like Diablo 3, Guild War 2, etc things like that.



This is what i got so far without peripherals, monitor, and case :pt1cable: 

I think PC itself should be at most thousand and perhaps 200 for monitors and the peripherals.

I need some help adjusting prices and getting the most efficient parts for the price

I would really appreciate the help. Thank you.

Get a 7870 instead. Unless you prefer Nvidia cards, then the 660 Ti would be good.
The PSU is overkill. Get this instead.
A cheaper and better motherboard: ASRock z77 Extreme4.

You forgot to choose a casing. I would suggest either the Rosewill Challenger or CM HAF 912.

This build allows you to add another one of those cards later on in SLI.

So if i don't need SLI, is the power supply that's recommended by excella good enough? Thanks

Yep and if you don't want to leave open the SLI option I would look for a less expensive board that's meant for a single card. The Asrock Z75 Pro3 goes for $85 and free shipping and it over clocks.
