So think I have a pretty solid build.

CPU:15-3570k 169.99 (micro center keeps juggling the price on this...one week its 169 the next week its 189 but ill wait till it goes down to 169)
http://www.microcenter.com/product/388577/Core_i5_3570K...

motherboard:Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H 149.99 (109.99 after the $40 discount)
http://www.microcenter.com/product/387556/GA-Z77X-UD3H_...

RAM: crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3-1600 (4GB x 2) 39.99
http://www.microcenter.com/product/382101/Ballistix_Spo...

video card: sapphire hd 7850 OC 2GB 209.99/MIR 194.99

PSU: corsair hx650 129.99/MIR 119.99 (this should be enough power?)
http://www.microcenter.com/product/399154/HX_Series_HX6...

optical drive: LG 24x SATA - 15.99
http://www.microcenter.com/product/401744/24x_SATA_Inte...

case: cooler master HAF 912 - 54.99
http://www.microcenter.com/product/343331/HAF912_Mid_To...

Please let me know what you think. Micro center is having a special when you buy the i5-3570k and a motherboard you get $40.00 off.

Get a cheaper board. I have this: http://www.microcenter.com/product/401769/Z77A-G41_LGA_... I like it alot.

I got a combo deal from MC as well.

Get this PSU: http://www.microcenter.com/product/399983/Builder_Serie...

Buy a video card online. They are cheaper. Look into 7870/ gtx 660ti with the money you saved.

instead of the ASrock extreme6 i have decided to go with the gigabyte ga-z77x-ud3h

http://www.microcenter.com/product/387556/GA-Z77X-UD3H_...

from what I was reading online the GB board may not have as much ports/slots but is better quality. With 40 dollars off I'm getting the board for 109.99, I can live with that.

still would like any feedback on the build though if anyone can provide that. :)

The build looks good. You are way overpaying for the GPU. Microcenter usually has expensive GPU's so go online. You can get a gtx660 for the same price as your 7850 or a 7870 for like 10 more dollars.

I forgot to update the gpu but tigerdirect is has a good deal on the 7850. 194.99 after rebate.

I'm actually trying to stay away from buying parts online, I would like to buy everything local.

oh I hate nvidia products, everything I ever had by them has died on me...

the 7870 is like in the 250's I don't want to spend that much since the 7850 is in the 190's and still a great card
