Watch the budget/kill your console vids and just adjust for newer parts

This would work good and will give great performance at 1080p will have a lot of room for games and can add another 4gb of ram later.  If you need to you can drop the graphics card to a hd7770 if you need to save a little

I would recommend a pentium/FX-6300 or a i3 if you have the budget of one and a 7850. 

Made some change's to you build as the 7850 wipes the floor with the 650 ti and added a better case.

the last kill your console video is a year old, so I think that's outdated.

ragingh4vok, I know the AMD 760k isn't on pc partpicker but I would get that instead. Better clock speed for $5 more.
