Hi BlkPanther09, I'm glad you took my suggestion to stop by Tom's.
Genghiskron's build spent $20 to much on the case, but otherwise is pretty solid. The only real difference between that and Aznshinobi's is that Genghiskron uses combos to get an i5-2400 instead of an i3. Although, I can't find an i5-2400/61 combo like the one he suggested (but did not provide a link for). That Antec PSU/HDD combo is pretty good. FYI: the cheapest i3/H61 Newegg combo is usually $189.
As far as I know, and somebody correct me if I'm wrong, an i3-2100 should get about the same framerates as an i5-2400. For $50, you may as well save it for graphics down the line (EDIT: or a GTX 560Ti now).
I have two build suggestions. Neither should be possible, but I'm am trying to either fit an i5-2500K/P67 in your budget or a Radeon 6950 2GB/GTX 560Ti.
if you look the case has a $10 promo code and a $25 rebate, so its actually a $35 dollar case AR. Imo thats a pretty good deal (if you dont mind rebates, personally i dont count em, but this guy specified AR).
Also note that you get 8 dollars off the PSU+HDD combo with promo code PSU11APRIL, even though this isnt advertised anywhere currently. But both deals expire tonight
^ Pretty good, is that used though? If it is, bad deal. I wouldn't suggest used parts at all. You don't know what can be done to them. Bent pins can be rebent to look like a new chip, but in reality it'll never work again.
Although the i5-2500K @ Compusa will actually cost you more to buy the mobo separately than if you just buy a Newegg combo. But if it's only a $10 difference or so (especially if you include shipping), a real store is much nicer in case you want to return items.
That's a good combo for the mobo, not for the PSU. Stick to Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, or XFX. If you see an amazing review (see jonnyguru.com for examples), then another brand might be okay. More expensive brands like PC Power & Cooling are good too.
It has two PCI-e slots and is a Gigabyte, which is as good as ASUS. It runs 16x/4x though instead of 8x/8x, so it won't run SLI (NVidia disables it to ensure SLI performs as well as they want it to). You can run crossfire, but it would hurt performance with a high end card (should be fine if you go with 5850's or 6870's though. It would own with one Radeon card and a low end GeForce for PhysX as well. It also has four RAM slots, which I like.
But you still might be best served getting your link and putting that $27 towards a better single graphics card. I'll be back a little later with some full build suggestions.
As for building, you should wait. No good combos on Newegg AT ALL right now w/ the exception of that CPU+MB combo.
If you want to build it now, you could support my website and get this GPU. There really aren't any GPU combos currently that are really that good. The F3 is 10$ above MSRP on the Egg as well. Amazon sells for 60, Newegg sells for 70.
