  3. Alright, here's my build. I've changed some things up.

    First thing I want to ask is ARE YOU SURE you will not overclock? Nowadays, it's as simple as going into the BIOS and changing a single setting. I would advise you to look into it.

    Assuming you want the possibility, i have concocted the following build.

    CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) $225

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227725&cm_re=agility_3-_-20-227-725-_-Product (this one is quite a bit faster than the one you selected)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500197

    And you choice of case.

    That comes to $1100 before case.
    Now, I went a bit over. However, this build is quite the powerhouse though.

    I would drop the SSD. The Spinpoint F3's are very fast.
