So i was wondering if any one would be nice enough to go threw this website and paste links to all the parts needed to make a gaming computer that can run Crysis 2, Battlefield 3 and Skyrim on Ultra, (P.S: Try and keep the price under $1200)

I gave it a shot and the first thing I looked for is a CPU. Found the i5-3570K only to be surprised they sell it for $282.04, that alone already made me stop.

Please consider other stores. I've come across of better computer stores with a lot cheaper prices than that one you linked.

Here's a build that revolves in two shops, mostly just on 1. You can see the $60~ difference in the CPU's price.

Thank you very much, Not only did you link the parts but you also linked websites that are Australian.

Excella always knows what he/she is doing. That being said, unless you want to add a second video card at some point, if you're on a budget you could get a 550w power supply and be just fine.

She. :p 

And yes, thank you for pointing that out. I actually had SLI/Crossfire in mind when I made the build but I forgot to point it out. XD
