fnal price is 1269.91$. the case is expensive, quiet, and HIGH quality, just like you want. the video card is extremely powerful, and the cpu is good for gaming, and very fast. also, in a few years, you can just put in a bulldozer (or other new cpu) unlike the intel sockets. all of the other parts are good and high quality, and you still have some money left over for a small ssd, more ram, cpu cooler, and a few other things...hope this helped

Are we looking at the same Antec 300? It's about as plain jane as a buttered toast... white bread. But for the OP, either build is a good recommendation. If you went with the 5970 build then you can dominate any and every game until the rig outdates itself. But get the cas7 g.skill ripjaws per 143miah's recommendation.
Same with the 5870 build. You honestly can't go wrong with either.
If it were me... i5-750 with the 5970... make it work .

OK, looks flashy in the picture but LED's have OFF switches....big roomy case w/ lots of cooling plus optional cooling additions and easy upgrade to multiple GFX cards. I use the same case (LED's on for the blingy teenagers and LED's OFF the for the AutoCAD geeks)
^ thats good, needs an os and all, however, 1156 is about the worse thing right now as far as future proof. idk if thats important to the OP, but thats a big factor...especially when the 965 x4 isnt even much slower than the 750, especially in gaming.
