Your probably gonna want to be in this area.
  • Power Supply - 600W (800W if you plan on SLI or Crossfire)
  • CPU - Intel Core i5, AMD FX-6100 (or better)
  • Graphics Card - GeForce GTX 660, Radeon HD 7870 (or better)
  • Memory - DDR3-1600 2x4GB

Note with 8Gb of RAM (which, IMO, is the "sweet spot" for today's systems) you will need a 64-bit operating system. I highly recommend 64-bit Windows 7 or Windows 8.

About power supply, storage and memory, any brand will do right?

Well, now you need to find a motherboard that supports that CPU. My favorite brand is Gigabyte, but I like ASUS too.

Well for storage and memory, maybe, but not power. It is important to buy a quality supply from a reputable maker to ensure you are providing good, clean power to your system. I like Antec and Corsair supplies.

and he mention about boot drive, what is that? and how to use it?

Then your old PC does not work! A computer MUST have a boot device. The boot drive is the drive that has the operating system installed on it.

It's compatible with your processor but it may be a little older. Can you post a link to the place your looking to buy it?
i go to pc center to buy my things, its close to my house so i dont buy from website and i know the boss there, so i can get some discount :)

-Processor : Intel Core i7 3770
-Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5-TH <--- if theres no need to use this one / theres a cheaper and compatible, please tell me
-Power supply : Anctec HCP-850 80 PLUS <---- this one too
-Case : Cooler Master Storm Enforcer
-Storage : WD CaviarBlack 1TB WD1002FAEX <--- maybe theres even better than this one?
-Optical drives : (help me choose one, low price and best performance)

maybe something like this? its cost alot :(
if theres a way to cut off some $, that will help alot
