Solved Good build for 600-700$??

Specs: Windows 7
I am new at building computers. I think I can do it, I'm pretty technically orientated and can follow instructions/guides to the bone. Also it does help that my job requires me to troubleshoot everything I do.

Bottom line is I am new and wondering if this is a good bang for my buck of a build. I only need it to play all the latest games on medium to high settings. Think this can work?

Make sure you bench-test all the hardware before installing it in the case.

I recommend looking at 900-series boards & DDR3-1866 RAM for the FX-series CPU. And get 2 x 4GB, not 1 x 8GB, that way you can run dual channel mode.

EDIT: cases with the PSU mounted at the top have better cooling characteristics plus you don't have to worry about the PSU cooling fan sucking up any dirt, dust, crumbs, hair, etc that gets near the bottom of the case.
