this window is small so i cant figure out how to copy paste the template easily, so ill get right to it, looking for around $800 before rebate desktop gaming pc for games like starcraft 2 diablo 3 bf3..etc i will need the monitor and os included with the build and i am quite new to this whole cpu building process, but i took a crack at it and came up with this http://pcpartpicker.com/user/pjwilly112/saved/2u6U
my biggest concerns are the motherboard, as i am not sure what makes one better than the other, but i chose an h77 because i do not plan on overclocking. and my other concern is the tower case, as it was included in a combo and i am not sure if it will fit all the components, thanks for the help!

I do plan on buying some peripherals, i have keyboard and mouse but will upgrade them as soon as i have the money and do some research on them, if you can fit them in the budget, that would be awesome, but not necessity

Your build is good enough, plus the bundles you get and also the combo discount. don't worry about the case all of it will fit in, the case is an ATX and it is also compatible with m-ATX. So.. you have no problem, about the peripherals maybe you should stick with your current kb/mouse and change it when you have the money.

Hope I help :)

So, i have been asking around and turns out i can get a free Dell SE198WFP monitor from my aunt who has upgraded, just wondering if this monitor will bee sufficient for my gaming needs, not familiar with monitors at all and if this will be a decent one to game on, its a bit dated, but if i can save some money there i may be able to beef up in other places on the build, thoughts?
