  1. change the motherboard and cpu to

    http://pcpartpicker.com/p/hrSz

    that will save you about 40 dollars where you will then want to upgrade your GPU to a 6870... or if you can spend the little extra money get a 7850(hyper link) because look at THIS and THIS oh and dont forget about THIS... In all seriousness if you do as i just posted your performance will SKYROCKET i know the i3 seems kinda weak but with those 2 cores you can do a lot for gaming... now if you saying "two cores is not enough" either spend the extra forty on the 6300 and mobo you selected or get THIS and THIS and you only need to add about 15 dollars to your build... now one thing about that motherboard is that you will not be able to crossfire because one slot is X16 and one is X1

    hope this helps :D
