This is a total of $840.91

I want to keep in that price range, or lower if possible. PC is primarily for gaming but also animation and video editing. Note this is first build. If possible If anyone can find better parts (cheaper) that would be great. The games I will be playing on this range from dayz, farcry 3 and battlefield 3. Additional things will be added later.

What Nix and Panzer said, get a better GPU.

If your budget allows, look at 7850, 7870, 7950 or 660ti

I agree on the 7850, easily one of best bang for cards right now.
If you can't afford it, cut the 'K' CPU, and that should lend an extra 30$ to the video card
Of course, if your that desperate...

Im actually playing in my T.V until i get a moniter but most likely in 1080p, also I'm thinking about the 560ti. But I will definitely upgrade it later

granted, i can't exactly vouch for the build quality of the motherboard or the OCing potential, but 4 eggs from 90+ reviewers isn't so bad.

520w is enough for a single card setup, but if you're looking to run the card in SLI/CF;

otherwise, if you don't want to cheap out on the board, a 7850 is a good and better option over the 550ti.

Thanks I'm loving that build you sent me, I will most likely stay with one card for now, but the case is big enough for an upgrade.

Well I'll really know when Christmas comes around, i have around 400 dollars now, and I usually get around 400-500 from friends and family. I all depends on how much I get. I really like the built hazle sent me.
