CPU- i5-3570k
Motherboard- Intel Desktop Motherboard LGA1155 DDR3 1600 ATX
Video card- AMD Radeon 7870
RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2X4 GB)
Hard drive-Western Digital 500 GB
Power supply- Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt
Case- Rosewill REDBONE

I own an optical drive and another 500 gig drive. and a 1080p tv so its not ridiculously high resolution.

I'm aiming for a high powered gaming device that wont become out dated in two years. I'm looking for a life of 3 years without serious updates.

Ideas? Ways to go cheaper down and keep the power? Ways to make it stronger at the same price?

It looks like a solid build. If you don't plan to overclock, get an i5 3470 and an h77 motherboard to save money.

At this budget, it isn't worth sacrificing gaming performance for faster boot times.

Agreed.

SSDs do cut down on loading times, especially on short games that change maps often.

I looked into ssd and they are too expensive and don't accomplish a ton. i can always add one if it turns out to be a something i really want.

They do accomplish a ton! But I agree, leave it to after :)
