^ From where will you be buying the parts ? Get a better quality PSU rather than spending so much on the case...IMO the Antec 300 Illusion would be a good option...

Also if you are fine with AMD, then get the X3 440 - IMO a better value for gaming PC and also you would save money there too...

for this kind of budget, youre better off with an AMD build.

agree with AMD as well. Just don't buy the 3 core that everyone and their grandma recommends just because its $20 cheaper than x4.

I thought the antec 902 was a pretty ugly case, but it does have good cooling. Check out the coolermaster sniper case if you want to spend a bit of cheese on a good case. I spent $100 on a nice modular corsair power supply and it was totally worth it. Though the wattage calculator may say 450watts is ok, you might still consider a 550-650 watt supply.

Let us know if you need us to list specific parts for recommendation, but know that their is a thread all about that topic on the main systems forum page.

has a fun.

^ I wouldnt say that the i3 530 is not a good CPU, but the only reason why I suggested the X3 is that you could save money...
But if you want to stick with Intel, then the i3 530 is a very good option for gaming...
