Hi everyone I wanna get some parts ordered so i can start building basically my dream computer. budget 1200-1500
I plan on playing a lot of Planet side 2/Crysis 3/Forge/SC3/D3 similar games like those. But when it comes to building these things I'm the greatest but my father would help me i would just like to get some suggestion from fellow PC gamers on the best product to get with my budget


only thing ive come up with so far would be the CPU/Video card plan on doing xfire but for now i can hold off with 1 card
i want to leave out, keyboard/mouse/monitor/speakers/


Video card
EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


CPU
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I53570K
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...



Everything else I'm sort of clueless on especially the Mobo that will support crossfire and can hold this video card

Solid gaming build. Allows SLI later on. Are you overclocking? If not, you can save some money by getting a locked cpu and using the hyper 212 evo or stock cooler.
