I play a lot of games on Steam like Skyrim, Borderlands 2, and other games like Aion, World of warcraft, Guild wars 2.

Only problem is that my PC isn't working as good as it used to

I'm wanting to build a completely new desktop, I've gotten a tower and power supply picked out, I'm just not sure about the CPU, GPU, motherboard, etc etc

I want something that's pretty powerful for future gaming experiences, and what not.

I dont' have an exact budget yet, but I don't think I can go super expensive like 2000+

If you think I should change power supplies or whatnot, let me know :)

Why is your machine "not working good"? What is the issue?

That case and psu are okay, not great but good enough for the money. Try this spec on for size.

cpu | Intel i5 3570k | $190
mobo | AsRock Pro4-M with MicroCenter bundle discount | $50
ram | 8GB Samsung MV-3V4G3D | $35
gpu | Gigabyte 7950 | $270
hdd | Barracuda 2TB | $90
ssd | Samsung 840 120GB | $80
psu | Seasonic X650 | $90
odd | Samsung SH-222 | $15
cooler | Zalman CNPS9900MAX | $15
case | Rosewill LINE-M | $40
----------------------------------------------
$875

Its 12 years old, and can't really be upgraded, it's slow as molasses, and I just can't use it for gaming anymore

Do you mind linking to each of that stuff? I'm not really sure what each is :(

My recommendation...u will have to change the PSU if u want to game on HD7970...
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CPAq

if you are planning on overclocking, just get the 3570K and MSI-Z77A-G45 mobo with the CM hyper 212+...
u can also downgrade the GPU and get the MSI GTX670... u can keep ur current PSU and case as they are good enough for a GTX670 build...

Can you add an SSD later after everything is built down the road? Say I have my OS on my HDD. To make it run faster I can put it on the SDD but it is hard to move it over from the HDD?
