Here is the updated build list. I'm thinking that I will stay with the i5 and learn how to over clock at some point in the future if I feel that it is necessary. Thanks to all for the suggestion that I bump up the GPU to a 4GB card. It really didn't change the cost of the rig that much once I shifted some other parts around. Also went to a mid-tower case instead of the full one. Windows 7 also ditched for 8. I'm thinking of saving up a bit more to shell out for a good sized SSD as well to cut out any waiting time.

Thanks to everyone with the quick responses! I've revised the build with suggestions, so here it is.

I took @kidavenger's advice and dumped the SSD, @a_deep_mushroom's advice and went for a Corsair 500W PSU, and used @wasabicurry's fixes for the GPU, HDD, and other fixes.

I'm a little confused as to why I want Windows 8.1 though, @kidavenger. I was under the impression 7 was the way to go.

So I'm thinking about making the jump from console gaming to PC gaming in coordination with my birthday next month. I haven't seen anything so far on the PS4 or XBone that has set my world on fire, and I think the time is ripe to make the switch. I'm thinking of spending $1100-1300 for the time being and upgrading the machine in a year or two to keep up performance. Here is a potential build that I've put together: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2GKw2

If anyone could give me suggestions based on this build, or give me a new build entirely in my price range that would be fantastic!

@ltwood12: I'm sorry that gaming is expensive and I like to get a good deal. Do I expect everything to be on sale all the time? No. But am I going to take advantage of sales to get access to great games? Yes.

This seems strangely similar to game press writers saying that you should turn off ad-block so they get paid for the ads they sell on their website. Do something completely inconvenient so we get paid more. Nonsense.

This is just the excuse I need to play Divekick for hours and hours on end.

Deus Ex doesn't have the most coherent story, but damn if I still don't love that game. It's linear, but offers room for exploration and deviation. Also, the upgrade system has the potential to make multiple playthroughs feel completely different. Give it a shot for sure.

How did Duke Nukem get in on the voice acting for this game?

Swamp ass is another colloquial term for it.
