Hey. I'm going to be gaming with this build and have decided to go with amd. With that said, and much research and pricing, I think i have most of my build down. I can't decide on a case and I want to keep this under $1100. The case I want to look nice and still be functionally sound. And any changes in my build you guys think i might need are appreciated .

i went the intel route. it will perform better in CPU intensive games and the GPU is slightly faster for cheaper

Sorry forgot to mention that, mid tower preferably , as long as it has room, but i can easily live with a full tower , i just want the case to look nice, and yet be functional, nothing thats like super nice looking , but has bad airflow ect..

Well, for starters, Samsung is coming out with their new 840 EVO SSD line. About three times faster than the Samsung 840 120GB.

Cases are a very personal decision. I like these things:

I'd recommned getting two 4GB ram sticks over one 8GB. The CPU will be able to talk to it twice as fast.

the 840 evo is pretty expensive for what it offers. unless the price is actually a fair bit lower than a good MLC SSD, i see no reason to get it over another
