I would go with i5 2500K which is better overall (or i5 2500 if you don't overclock)

I would also avoid buying any HD5000 series. You could get HD6850/HD6870 which are cheap and perform good

I will be getting a stronger GPU in the future once prices drop. I don't really need anything better then a 5770 because the games I'm playing right now aren't that demanding...But I will go with the 5830 just because of the price/performance. I will also be getting this - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL over the memory I had chosen earlier. I changed the Hard drive to this - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive but I am debating whether I should get a ssd, but I'm not sure if ill need one. I don't really care about boot time or load time, ANYTHING is better then my current pc (Dell Dimension E521 Product Details | Dell) so i probably won't get one. I also changed the mobo to the one Patonb suggested ( - ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard ). So what do you guys think?
