I have not built my own pc before and I am currently on a 5-6 year old HP. I think its time to upgrade and build one from scratch to save a little coin. I have looked at other threads and everything is not quite what Im looking for. I will be playing Arma 2 religiously until Arma 3 is available. My only purpose for this new pc is gaming! I looked at http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CV38 but I wanted to see if anyone can find a better setup... Please help in any ways you can and I appreciate any comments or suggestions. OTHER INFO:I will most likely be using my TV as the "monitor" so a HDMI slot would be nice. MAX budget would be about $700 but not a dime over.

I'm not happy about that 430 watt PSU, it only allows for up to 80% of the total power output. Better to go with at least a 750 watt PSU so that the 80% is not going to be less than what is actually required for the total output.
