Hey, I've done some days research on which gaming pc build I an planning to get. I've made a 1130$ pc build and a 1000$ pc build. Which one of those are most worth it for the price/performance? And can you tell me the difference in FPS between those two builds? In games like Aion, Neverwinter, Tera online, Perfect World, BF4, CoD MW2, WoW, LoL, CSS etc. Mostly online games.

Also one more question not so important, but still wondering. Will an ATX Motherboard fit inside an Micro ATX Computer Case?

Hope you are able to help me :S

I would go with the $1K build. It is more bang for your buck and is really good. That build can handle anything you can throw at it. Regarding your question, it depends on which case you are talking about. If you are talking about the Source 210, you will be fine. In fact, it's actually not an Micro ATX case. It's a mid-tower. However, if you are talking about say the Bitfinex Prodigy then no. That case can only hold Mini ITX/Micro ATX Mobos. Hope this helped!

I agree with the $1000 build.
You could go for another cooler,the next is a bit ($10) more expensive but better,

I also would go for the next psu,

In the end at max. another $10 added.

Alright, thanks for quick answers, but do anyone know how the FPS will be on the $1000 build in these kind of games I stated?
