Need advice. First time builder

Approximate Purchase Date: february 12th

Budget Range: 1100 including tax, before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, autocad, surfing,

Parts Not Required: just looking at building the tower i have all other components

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: i would prefer to get the parts from either newegg canada or ncix canada

Country of Origin: Canada

Parts Preferences: I'm just looking for a mid tower case, intel sandy bridge processor with 2 22' screens

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: my monitor resolutions are both 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I really want a quiet case, with a window but if i cant have that then definitely the quiet case over a window

Some components ive been looking at are:

Corsair HX650

G.skill ripjaws 8GB 2x4 rated at cas 9 at 1600

asus p8p67 evo board

i5 2500k processor

WD blue 500g harddrive ( I hope to upgrade to SSD and a WD 2tb green later but it looks like the budget wont allow it at the moment)

any random dvd drive. I dont care for a blu ray player

MSI (gtx 460 cyclone or if i can make it work a gtx 560 twin frozer. Both cards are 1 gig of course)

coolmaster hyper 212 heatsink ( to overclock the unlocked i5) :D

I am really undecided on the case sadly. I've been looking anywhere from the antec 300 to 900 as well as the corsair 600t or 650d which was showcased at ces. The only restraint i have is that it has to be a mid tower.

  1. For cases I recommend the HAF 912 for 59.99 it's roomy and easy to work in. You can add LED fans later if you so choose.
