So yeah I want to play games on the pc at like max graphics (ultra settings) with a steady 50-60 fps. Here is my current build so far and also feel free to change some things. My budget is $1500 since im not that rich. I also think i'll be buying everything from Micro Center since there in my neighborhood.

Intel Core i5-3570K Processor: ($170 @ MicroCenter)

Corsair Hydro Series H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Kit: ($110 @ MicroCenter)

EVGA GTX 680 Superclocked Graphics Card: ($470 @ MicroCenter)

ASRock Z77 Extreme6 LGA 1155 ATX Intel Motherboard ($160 @ MicroCenter)

Samsung 8GB DDR3-1600 : ($48 @ MicroCenter)

128GB Samsung 830 Series SSD: ($130 @ MicroCenter)

2TB Western Digital Caviar Black Hard Drive: ($180 @ MicroCenter)

750W Corsair TX750 V2 ATX Power Supply: ($120 @ MicroCenter)

CM Storm Enforcer Mid Tower ATX Gaming Computer Case: ($90 @ MicroCenter)

Lite-ON 24X SATA DVD Burner: ($17 @ MicroCenter)

TOTAL: $1495

I wouldnt recommend a USB DVD burner, because it depends on whether the BIOS Supports it externally, itd be alot easier and safer to go with a 20$ SATA DVD/CD drive. FTW is just a 680 pce cooler on a 670. Its not worth the extra price when aftermarket provides better cooling.

Some of these parts you should definitely not get from microcenter. The prices are to high and you'll also have to add tax on top of it.
