I want to get a best gaming build under 825 dollars. I posted a thread back in Jan but my birthday's in little over a month now so I need to prepare.

Sounds good. Will it be able to run Crysis 3 at Med settings?

I think that setting should be able to max Crysis 3 looks pretty good for the money.
If you need an operating system too though it will be like $100 more.

What resolution is your monitor? At 1080p, a 7950 should have no problems at all.
