Okay hello again. This is my second topic. I have watched plenty of videos on how to build a PC, so I want to play games at good settings. BF3, Skyrim, ACIII, Minecraft and record with fraps. He is my pcpartpicker, I don't want to go over my budget $750. Thx

This is going to own every game out there! :) 

I took out the SSD in favor of a better and I mean really better GPU.

The 7850 is no slouch but the 7870 XT is really a beast. If you still want that SSD which I really don't advice, take out the 7870 XT then get the 7850 and SSD.

Oh yeah, never use the APU CPUs. They are weak CPU with good IGP which you don't need since you are buying a separate GPU. :) 

Hope this helps.

that article is three years old...i dunno im just biased against roasewill from the crap they put out in the past.

Yeah, I still am. I only recommend the Green Series because it's cheap.

It's still pretty good and it's the same but cheaper.
