I think it comes out to around 600$, I can spend another 100$ now though wondering what I should change..
Would upgrading to an i5 be best?

95$ change:

Also I should say I'm mainly using it for gaming, and this is my first build so I'm not sure about things. My friend helped me out with the rest and I'd like to keep it all off of newegg if possible

    Hmm that looks good too, I'd still have ~100$ more to spend though. If I upgrade to an i5 would I need a new board, or would it even be necessary to upgrade? I'm looking to spend 750$ at the very most
  3. Yeah you can get i5 and if you have some money left i advise to get radeon 7950
  4. Alright I'll probably do that then. I didn't realize there were a lot of different i5's, which should I get? Just the one without integrated graphics?
  5. Switched out to these, are they good?
    GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support $299.99

    Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 $219.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504

    And added it all to my cart on newegg, total at 840$
    I'll just use my old monitor for now and grab a new one next time I get paid
  6. please someone give me the green light that those last two parts I switched out are fine...I'm 99% sure they are but like I said this is my first time picking parts.
    my finger is hovering over the checkout button xD
  7. 3570k is made for overclocking, as i understood you're not planning to do it so, i5-3470 would be cheaper and just as good choice.
    Not sure about gpu, based on this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7950-review-benchmark,3207-14.html i would recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127667&Tpk=MSI%20HD%207950%20Twin%20Frozr%20III this one( just 20$ more and you get three free games!)
