CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
MOBO - Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
RAM - Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
GPU - HIS Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
Case - Rosewill Challenger-U3 ATX Mid Tower Case
PSU - OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply

Total Price: $620-650 depending on stores

Notes:
-Later on down the road I will overclock the CPU and add a Cooler, but I won't to start so thats why no cooler.
-The CPU, motherboard, and RAM are bundled together for a great deal, so I can't really change those without increasing the price or getting lower quality parts.
-From what I've heard, a 700w PSU is about the power that I need if I want to Crossfire and have an OC CPU with my setup.
-I'm willing to change the graphics card I have, but it must be no more than $180-190. From what I've heard, the Radeon 7850 2GB is the best in the sub 200 price range. I can also overclock the 7850 later on down the road and/or crossfire it.
-I will be using a ASUS VH236H 23" monitor running at 1080p.

Does this seem like a good setup for the cost? What kind of real-world performance will I see from it?
