Hello everyone - I've been reading these forums for a little now and never have posted so I'm going to start now
About two years ago I got myself a DIY Case from Newegg.com for around 250$ and it played fairly well amazingly for the smaller games so I updraded my graphics card - and I just upgraded it again! So I'm going to post the specs of my system currently - and I'm hoping to get some replys for what I should/shouldn't put in my system - So here we go!

Current Specs ---
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Mother Board: MSI 760GM-P33 AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard ((Discontinued))

Memory: G.SKILL Value 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Storage: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Video Card: XFX HD-667X-ZWF4 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Case: Rosewill R363-M-BK Black Ultra High Gloss Finished MicroATX Computer Case with 400W ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)) Still using that power supply sadly :( 

Power Supply: **See Above**

Optical Drive: LG DVD Burner 24X DVD+R ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Alright so thats my base system I have at the moment, and with the recomendations don't honestly worry about price too much - but I don't want to spend alot of money ((like buying a i7 over i5)) due to little increase in performance over little price increase. And I don't want to spend something crazy like 300$ on a case haha - Well anyways I'm going to write out what I'm doing hope to hear from you all, and this is going to be a gaming PC build - thanks again!

CPU: I'm thinking the i5-3750k

Mother Board: Not entirely sure

Memory: I need a upgrade - still not sure which series to get, 2x4, 2x8, 4x4?

Storage: Thinking about getting one of those western digital 1-1.5TB black drives - is it worth it?

Video Card: MSI Hawk 7870 **Already Bought Shipping Soon** ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Case: I need a new case - Thinking CM Storm Trooper or a Antec - Not positive yet tho.

Power Supply: HX750W **Already Bought** ((http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...))

Opticial Drive: No idea maybe some blue ray.

Hope to hear from you all soon!
