Budget Range: 0-400$ before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, no adaptors (wireless adapters, routers)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:,, anything site works really

Country of Origin: U.S.A.

Parts Preferences by brand or type: Would like to stick to reliable names, but would bend for a cheaper price

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (if its compatible with the build)

Additional Comments: Mainly going to be playing RIFT with this PC, so it will need a good gpu, about 4-8 gbRAM and it also needs a dvd reader to read game discs.
( I got most of my information from there, but am still unsure about a few things.

HD -
DvD reader -
Case -

I don't know whether or not everything will fit in the case, and i'm unsure about the power supply needed.
Looks don't matter, i want a barebones system that kicks butt for a good price.

Well first things first, all you selected was a motherboard without a CPU. Either you forgot to add it, or you got mixed up. Second, that GPU, it is 2 generations old, and is ok for maybe HTPC but not really gaming. Everything would fit in that case, but you did not include a power supply. And personal opinion I would shop at Newegg.
