Hey everyone , i had a build set in mind a few months back, but wasn't able to build it due to various reasons. Few months have past and need help with parts as im looking to complete the build by December. Here is the original build. SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner SATA Model COOLER MASTER HAF 922 Western Digital Caviar Blue SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 G.SKILL Value Series 8GB GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3V Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge

Im looking to up the price of the computer build, my range is about $750-$800

This is a gaming rig computer, but i'd also like to kinda browse the web and watch videos on it also, but main focus is gaming.

Over the course of the months have new parts come about that destroy the current ones i have ? i need help re designing this build to max out the 800$ price range.

This price is after $50 in rebates, and there is shipping on some items, but there's also an extra $10 off the PSU that isn't reflected in this price.
