    So I tried following the "great" part of the Logical Increments PC buying guide but got overwhelmed by all of it. I am not sure about the $260 graphics card for a $750 computer even though I am going strongly for gaming. It would really be helpful if someone could give me a nice list of parts.

    -Live in America
    -I'll be using it for mainly gaming. Half life 2, Battlefield 3, Diablo 3, Crysis 2, Team fortress 2, etc.
    -I don't need any extras, just the computer.

    Thanks!

    It makes sense spending $260 on the GPU if you want to play Crysis and BF3, Just go with the $750 guide and you'll be happy, keep in mind if you ever want to sli though you will have to upgrade your power supply and maybe your CPU but for now it will do just fine.

    Alright guys, I decided update the list a little bit more and it can down to $760.

    How does this look?

    Edited:

    Should I get a worse video card to get an i5?

    You can save $15 if you buy this case. I'm using one right now, and it has plenty of space for airflow and cable management.
