Hi Folks,

I've been waffling back and forth on price. Based on the deals that are currently out there, I feel it's worth investing in some better components. No monitor no OS.

I'm basically interested in putting together a long term building for casual gaming. I originally started at 600-700, went up to 1k back down to 500 and now I'm settling at 800. I don't plan to overclock at this point.

I'm working on a mid-gaming build and I'm getting close to finalizing a build for under 800. I have access to a Microcenter and the CPU/Mobo combo seems like a great deal to me. I was waiting to see the pricing for GTX650 ti Boost but it seems like the 2GB 7850 is the better value.

Based on partpicker - I'm concerned I have a card clearance issue with my case.

Could I trouble folks to review this build to see if I have any compatibility issues?
