"i was thinking of asrock extreme 6"

I thought this was supposed to be a budget build? You should be able to build a decent gaming rig for about $500 if you choose wisely. The Extreme6 is over $250.

Board - $85: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

CPU - $120: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

CPU Cooler - $0: use the stock one, you can always upgrade later if you feel it's necessary.

RAM - $39: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Video Card - approx $120: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Power supply - $20: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Hard drive - $118: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Case: everyone has their own opinion about what looks good. Cases with top mounted power supplies generally have superior cooling characteristics.

Total (so far) = $502

Also if u wanna save some cash get 4GB(2Gb x 2) of DDR3 1600 because no game out there use more than 3GB of memory.

I gave recommendations based on the CPU selected and refined the definition of Mid-level Gaming Rig based on that.
AS Rock has a good reputation for boards, I have had good results with Gigabyte boards. As noted already the board you mentioned would put you right out of the mid-price range of severely limit the video card you could select. I went up a bit on the power supply assuming that most gamers would eventually think about upgrading and that one could support a GTX660 Ti or so in case you eventually decided to upgrade.
Corsair memory is generally good but g-skill has a good reputation from users and typically is less expensive for the same grade.
Radeon cards are generally less expensive for the same range, but if you can spend a little bit more, there are some advantages to their architecture in some games. Your choice. That's why I said Start here.... I knew there would be many more opinions on this. Cases are mostly personal opinions so I left out any. Just look at the personal reviews on Newegg before you select one.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
