Even sandy bridge pentiums suck. Go all out and get the gaming standard i5 2500k. As for boards the best chipset to look for is probably Z68, It's a sort of hybrid of the other two.

GPU is alright, RAM is alright; HDD is okay, might be an idea to go upto 1TB as games are forever increasing in size.

Case is irrelevant, fans irrelevant

Hmm, now then... 460W; that may or may not be enough, since it's CM it's probably enough.

Writer irrelevant


Do you have a budget? We could craft you up something better balanced if we know what your top mark price is.

For your parts, I recommend Newegg.com. You can get all the parts you need for much less there. You could probably find any one particular part slightly cheaper elsewhere, but newegg is your 1-stop shopping place for getting all your components. Sometimes you can make out well on tigerdirect or ebay, but I use newegg 90% of the time.
