Hello,
Im building a NEW rig today.

99% gaming, 1% everything else...

Budget 1200$.

What I DONT NEED.

O.S (w7)
Tower (cooler master stormscout)
HDD (500 gig WD black)
PSU (550W OCZ FATAL1ty)
Heat sink (Cooler master V8)
--------------------------------

What I Do need
Mobo (PERFERABLY RED N BLACK to match case)
Video card (Im hoping for a single solution because age of conan doesn't mix well with sli/xfire)
Memory
CPU
Monitor
Pheriphals...speakers...keyboard..mouse..etc
================]
Once again my budget is 1200$

This PC will be GAMING and nothing else.
Much help appreciated.
