Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any.

Additional Comments:

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:

My current PC is unable to run most games smoothly.. It's very outdated.

I would like to be able to play the following games on high to maximum settings, if possible with my budget.
Sixty or higher FPS is a must. (60FPS).

I really do not play any other games aside from STEAM games, but I am looking to play ARMA II's Dayz mod, and would like to be able to play it on highest settings if possible.
This will be my first PC build. :) .
Thank you! :) 
(Originally had a thread about this, but the build that was provided has components that have very bad reviews, or are discontinued. Thanks. :)
