I will be buying the parts I have listed in a week so I would appreciate another pair (or multiple pairs) of eyes to scan through my parts list and see if everything looks compatible. This is my first build so I tried to keep things simple.

I did not list a monitor because I have no idea as to what kind I should choose beyond that I want it to be in the ballpark of 23 inches. Also, if anybody thinks there is a better looking or more appropriate case I'm all ears. :) 

Approximate Purchase Date: Next Saturday (one week from now)


Budget Range: $1500 including everything

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, surfing, word & some programing


Parts Not Required: All parts required


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon, although I can go with newegg or tigerdirect if need be


Country of Origin: U.S.


Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel


Overclocking:Maybe


SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (not anytime soon, but I want to keep my options open for when the 570 by itself is not enough.


Monitor Resolution: Whatever resolution i get on a 23 inch monitor (probably 1920 x 1080)

A very solid parts list. Most 23" monitors are 1080p resolution and with the parts you listed you should be able to max out every game on the market at that resolution. What do you think could possibly being wrong with your choice for a case?

I guess the only thing that could be wrong is the dimensions, although i am pretty sure everything will fit. I am mostly interested if anybody knows of a better looking case for the same price.

The dimensions of that case are some if not the biggest in that price range, If you don't like the looks of the case that is up to you.
