825 dollar build help

I have little to no knowledge of how to build computers so I was hoping I could have builds recommended to me. I need everything besides a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Please try to show me the build on pcpartpicker.com through a link.


Approximate Purchase Date: Black Friday/Cyber Monday

Budget Range: 825.00(before shipping) US$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surging

Are you buying a monitor: No



Do you need to buy OS: yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, TigerDirect, any trusted US website

Location: USA, Baltimore, MD

Parts Preferences: What ever gets me the most powerful and graphically pleasing

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe/I will be maybe 1 -2 years after


Additional Comments: I want to make sure what I get isn't going not bottleneck or run into any compatibility issues. Also, I want this gaming rig to play essentially any game you can throw at from League of Legends, Diablo 3, Call of Duty, and other titles yet to be released. Please do not go over $825.

  2. There is a Microcenter at
    1957 E Joppa Road
    Baltimore, MD 21234
    (I know you probably want to buy online, but any pc builder with a Micro Center near them would be foolish not to take advantage of the discounts)
    You should probably pick up an i5 3570k
    http://www.microcenter.com/product/388577/Core_i5_3570K_34GHz_LGA_1155_Processor
    and a motherboard:
    http://www.microcenter.com/product/387554/Z77_Extreme4_LGA_1155_Z77_ATX_Intel_Motherboard

    Buying both at Micro Center, if it is possible for you to get there will also qualify for a $40 bundle discount.
  3. g-unit's is pretty good but!!!

    You should get the 1tb Seagate drive from newegg. Only $50 so you save $38 from it. it comes with 2 year warranty so no problems there.

    That's all.
  4. Here's a suggestion.

    Though Novulux is right, if you could walk in a Microcenter, the 3570K is like $50 cheaper, and you get a discount on the motherboard which I thought was $50 off for a while now. :lol:

    Nope, they changed it to $40, those conniving devils. How dare they cause us to save less money.
