I posted my part list here a few days ago and after reading everyone's suggestions ended up changing almost everything ^ ;;
So here's my revised part list. I'll be using this computer for gaming, primarily single player stuff. Also for writing and drawing, but I don't have much of an issue there with my current set up so I'm not concerned with that. My goal is to have a computer that will run new games for at least a couple of years, with minimized settings if need be, and that I'll be able to upgrade once or twice before just going for a new computer. I'd like to keep it under $800, and because I've been using laptops for a while now I also need to get monitor/keyboard/etc.
A bit about my preferences: I'd like to stay with Intel for this build, and have at least 8GB ram. For the video card I just want the best performance for the price, if there's a better Radeon someone knows of I'll be fine switching. I prefer wired peripherals, and I want an IPS monitor. I'm not too concerned about the computer's volume from fans and such as I'll be wearing headphones most of the time while using it.
