i was actually just working on one, give this a try http://pcpartpicker.com/user/bmyles/saved/2fQb

it doesnt have a optical drive though, but you should be able to play less demanding games on high settings and demanding games on low to med settings, dont expect full 1080p but about 720p, it does a decent gpu as well. also its only $300, for $60 more i would recommend getting a better gpu such as this http://pcpartpicker.com/part/powercolor-video-card-ax78502gbd5dh

i would recommend this gpu if you have another 80 bucks to spare http://pcpartpicker.com/part/sapphire-video-card-1003523l its much more powerful and can max out most games with the exception of maybe crysis 3 and metro last light, but otherwise it gives a strong punch.but the original gpu you picked should be sufficient enough for that game in particular.

if you're trying to save money i would recommend stepping down the cpu to a 6000 series instead of 8 core. also i would recommend stepping up the gpu as well.

thanks i was originally going to go with the 7850,someone else suggested the 660, but otherwise for cost purposes will switch it back to the 7850, honestly i dont plan on overclocking but airflow is always a concern, i was looking for something more sleek considering its going to be used in an entertainment system.i went with a higher psu just to futureproof it in case i ever decide to do upgrades to the gpu or add a tv tuner.but ill definitely switch back to the 7850 after watching several youtube videos on that card, it ran many intensive games with ease.

thanks, i'll def switch to the 660 then, what about motherboard also, any suggestions or it should complement everything else?

i actually started with a lower power wattage but i plan on doing some upgrades in the future(possible dual graphics card) and just wanted to be sure it would pull everything.

thats actually nice, but im fairly set on the selected case, the only thing i was mostly concerned about was my graphics card, is the gtx 660 more powerful or a better investment?
