*****************
Also I don't mind suggestions for prebuilds if anyone reading this has any suggestions for me :D 
*****************

Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: 12/10/12
Budget Range: Roughly $500-600

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Burning movies.

Are you buying a monitor: No, I have a brand new Asus VH236H 23" monitor.



Parts to Upgrade: Everything except RAM I have Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 DD3 8gb I also don't need any other peripherals like a keyboard / mouse.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Please note that if you're using an OEM license of Windows, you will need a new one when buying a new motherboard.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, TigerDirect, Amazon.

Location: San Diego, CA, USA

Parts Preferences: Would prefer Intel and Asus. (Unless there's an AMD processor that can compete with Intel and last a few years).

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe depending on if I'll need to at some point to get better graphics for the games I'm going to be playing.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: For the most part I would be using the computer to play WoW, BF3, CS:GO, and so forth. Mostly FPS games on med - high graphics and somewhat future proof.

Upgrading because I've been playing with a laptop for the past 4 years and it would be nice to just have my laptop for school primarily instead of school and gaming.

Thanks for your help!

you can cross out the memory on this build leaving you a bit more wiggle room and also unless you plan on buying boxed games (which typically come with a download code anyways) then you don't need the optical drive. That will save you a good 60 or so $ meaning you can upgrade to an i5 either get a 2500k (or 2500 if you dont plan to oc) or an i5 3570 either of those are great.
Also you can get a cheaper mid tower case, though you may just want to stick with that one.

Thanks you 2 for helping me on this and yeah most of the game I'll be getting is from Steam but the optical drive is mostly for burning dvds but for the meantime I can probably just use my laptop for that. Also is the performance a big jump from i3 to i5 2500 and if 3570?

Yeah the performance is a significant increase in most games especially multi thread optimized games... If you get the i5 2000 you wont be disappointed the gap isn't to large and the i5 3470 runs hotter.

Alright after doing some research and checking other threads and taking into consideration the builds others gave me I've made a build although I was wondering how good would it be and if theres any way to reduce the cost by a few dollars?
