    This build should do quite nicely, but look around for sales for similar parts.

    Edit: Just saw that you wanted the Phantom 820. With that case this builds total would be $2085.01.
  4. Groudon forgot the OS, but we all got the same idea. Z87 motherboard, i5 or i7, 16 GB RAM, 650+ PSU (depending on whether you want to SLI in the future), and a 23-24" monitor.
