This is a beast for gaming at 750 dollars. It can play any game at almost ultra settings at 1080p with 40+ FPS easily. This build is way better than the one you selected in almost everything.

Thanks for the build advice, I think I might go with a good number of these changes. I hadn't been able to find a TT case that small.

appreciate it.

That ThermalTake case is awesome and it is just 19 bucks. This is such a good thing for dirt cheap prices.
It is a good case for any person who wants an awesome case but does not want to spend money like crazy. Best for budget builds like this.

Would it be prudent to go ahead and order 1 or 2 120mm fans with the case since it only has 1 preinstalled?

Ofcourse, drop in extra fans, they are really cheap and it would ensure better cooling. I don't see it as a problem.

If my answers helped, then please make sure that you select it as the best answer, it would be highly appreciated by me.

it looks like the primary gaming use is MMO's. So how about this

comes to $801

I went with win 7 though 64 bit. The case is very nice, comes with 2 120mm fans. Nice air flow to I like cooler masters haf models. And with that cooler you shouldn't have to worry about temps ocing that 6300.
