    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter) this one will be much better for gaming... and you are already going out of your way for ssd... throw in a few more bucks for this stuff and be a happy guy :D amd fx8350 is great.. but 8 cores for what? to use 1-4cores and then 4 cores on idle?
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($104.99 @ Newegg)

    switch :D

    paying about 30~40$(possibly 70$ if no microcenter near you) more will result in a much better gaming system.

    Yeah... ME :D

    had a second look and you should just get the 1600mhz (ram) instead of 2133mhz. Because you will not see the diff
