It's all okay but I would tweak some changes if I'm at your case. If you have the budget then go to h77 board. While in the case of ram. I know 4gb is becoming the standard of PCs today, but for a gaming PC most are going to 8gb. But at your build, no more than 8gb will do. So ill switch it to 8gb. Corsair is a decent PSU so which ever is okay since 600w is already too much for your build. even 500w will do.

a 0.2ghz drop isn't going to give you a significant loss in performance that you should be greatly worried about. and for $25 less, that's a great damn deal.

it's a heckuva lot better to go with a dual kit ram over a single ram. plus i just saved you $25. may as well go for it.

the CX600 is okay-ish if you're not the type who turns on his PC for days/weeks on end.

personally, if you're going with a 1080p monitor, consider aiming for a 22-24" monitor. 27" is 1440p territory. though that's just my personal opinion.

Okay that sounds doable. Could you list all of the parts that you do need for this build? i.e. CPU, HD, Monitor, Keyboard, OS, etc....

Lunyone's "I just need a bit more speed than a Budget friendly Build!"

Upgraded parts from original "Budget Build" that I posted before, are:
* CPU upgraded a bit
* HD upgraded to SSD!
* GPU upgraded a little over a step up!
* PSU upgraded to handle more GPU power!

Gaming build on a more affluent budget!

CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($125.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($89.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($41.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 840 Series 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($179.73 @ Amazon)
Video Card: HIS Radeon HD 7870 2GB Video Card ($214.98 @ Newegg)
Case: Rosewill REDBONE U3 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Rosewill Hive 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($59.49 @ Amazon)
Optical Drive: Sony AD-7280S-0B DVD/CD Writer ($18.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $781.15
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

* CPU is one of the best in this price range and performs quite well in gaming!
* Mobo has onboard USB 3.0 ports, to take advantage of the Front USB 3.0 ports on the case listed!
* RAM runs at stock voltage of 1.5V's and at 1600 mHz speed @ CAS 9!
* SSD is one of the faster ones out there and also has quite a bit of room for several games and applications (at 250 gb's of space before format and Windows install). This will keep things snappy in and around Windows!
* One of the better GPU's for the $/perfomance out there! Hard to beat around this price range!
* Case has 3 x 120 mm fans INCLUDED! and also comes with 2 x USB 3.0 front ports! Most cases around this price range only include 1 or 2 fans and most don't have front USB 3.0 ports!
* PSU is 80 + Bronze Certified at 40 degrees C!!! Also is modular, keeps cable clutter down and airflow up! Has 38A on the 12v rail and comes w/1 x 6 pin & 1 x 6+2 pin PCI-e power connectors for any single GPU out there!

So there you have it! Gaming on a Moderate budget build!

You can find this build on Page 3 of the Best Configs: Budget Intel gaming build Here.

* You can drop the SSD and install a 320 gb - 1 TB HD instead for about $50-80 and save ~$100.
* You can drop the GPU down to a 7850 2 gb and save about $30-50 over the 7870 listed.
