Hy guys here is my final build
I've got some questions
1)Is the CPU Cooler good
2)Is the GPU a good card if not could you tell me another one. ( I am mostly going to play Bf3 and borderlands 2 so i would prefer nvidia)
3)Is 620W enough for everything
4)I need a good monitor 1920x1080p for about 200$ and a mouse and keyboard for less than 60$
5)Reccomend good SSD for 100$
6)And most importantly your opinion on the build

1. The CM Hyper 212 EVO is a great cooler, for the price you won't get better.
2. The GTX 670 is a monster of a video card. It should play all your games very well.
3. A 620W power supply should be enough, just make sure it has at least a 50A 12V rail. The OCZ ZT is fully modular, has a 54A 12V rail, and is priced very well ~$100. The OCZ ZT 750 hos a few more modular cables for ~$30 more.
4. Acer makes a pretty decent 24" 1080p monitor, and they can be had in the $150 price range. I have a Logitech wireless KB and mouse, but those items are so much up to the user and how he/she likes the feel.
5. You can get the OCZ Vertex 4 128GB for ~$95.
6. What's your budget? I know the other forum members will try and crucify me, but go with at least 16GB of RAM. DDR3-1600 RAM is the sweet spot for price, and Ivy Bridge processors have great cache that higher speed RAM does not really translate into better performance. For the price of 8GB of DDR3-1866 you can get 16GB of DDR3-1600. Also for $100 more you can get the i7 3770k, as of right now, games don't make use of hyper threaded CPUs, but in the future that might change. Will this rig be nothing but a gaming rig?

yeah im getting it as well... the fx-8120 bottlenecked my gtx 670 msi power edition to the point that im getting 30-60(with vsync) fps in bf3 when im suppose to be getting like 50-60(with vsync)

all i know is that its a powerful chip that will last a while and im pretty sure can oc pretty well if you have the power and cooling
