hey, i'm going to be building a new computer in the next few weeks and i will be mostly using it for gaming (battlefield 3, CS:GO, dark souls) and browsing the internet. my budget is $1000 and it has to be able to support dual monitors (1920x1080). if someone could tell me if these parts would all work together and be able to run modern games i would really appreciate it.

HDD 1Tb WD Caviar Black 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64m Cache
Case CoolerMaster HAF-XM Case
CPU Intel Core i5-3570 LGA1155 3.4Ghz
SSD 120Gb Kingston V+200 SSD
Mobo Asus P8Z77-M Z77 MB
DVD DriveSamsung 24X SATA DVD Writer
PSU 725W CoolerMaster eXtreme II 2
RAM 8Gb DDR3 Corsair 2X4Gb 1600Mhz

i already have a graphics card AMD Radeon HD 6870 but i would buy another if it costs $200 or less.

i would prefer to buy everything from netplus since they are local and they have good prices.

Do not get that PSU. Look for something from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic.
