    I'm building a reasonably cheap gaming rig, with a total budget of around $700

    Here's what i'm planning right now:

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3450 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($149.99 @ Microcenter)
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($134.99 @ Newegg)
    Memory: Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($38.99 @ Newegg)
    Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($64.99 @ Amazon)
    Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($209.99 @ Newegg)
    Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($47.98 @ Newegg)
    Power Supply: SeaSonic 520W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($69.64 @ Newegg)
    Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ Newegg)
    Total: $733

    Ideally, i'd like to stick with an Ivy bridge CPU, but i'm open to any advice

    Looks good; don't forget an aftermarket CPU cooler.
