Ok so This is my first build and i was wondering what you guys thought of it and to see whether it needs to be tweaked or not.

Budget Range: $800- 1100 ~ Can go over a little bit

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming - bf3, farcry etc./ livestreaming maybe/ casual stuff

Are you buying a monitor: Yes im thinking either one of those two resolutions would work 1680x1050, 1920x1080 and any suggestions for a specific monitor would be helpful

Parts:
CPU: i5 - 3550 or i5 2500 or i5 3570(non k) not sure which one to get

Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ram - http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

MOBO: No idea about this part, so any help would be appreciated

GPU: Msi Twin frozr GTX 660 2GB NOT OC

PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2

SSD: not sure any suggestions. I dont need it too be too much prob 64-128 GB is fine because i'll get an HDD

HardDrive: not sure which ones are good so any suggestions here would be helpful pref 500GB or up. i take up alot of space :p 

Do you need to buy OS: Yes but wont worry about this too much

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg or tigerdirect

Location:Westminster California

Parts Preferences: for the Case i prefer cooler master.
For ram and the psu i prefer Corsair but they dont really matter

Overclocking: NO

SLI or Crossfire: NO

Additional Comments: Thanks for the help guys its much appreciated. Also for the case i hope you guys can suggest something that has lots of airflow and easy for a first time builder like myself. I would prefer if it had a filter.

So i want to see what you guys think about what i have so far and whether u guys think i should change some parts or what not. Anyway Thanks again :D
