  1. and my case size is a micro atx!
  2. I'll go with this one for my build (I'm also planning on getting a 2500 and a single mid/high tier GPU):

    Gigabyte has yet to fail me. That's why I'm sticking to their mobos.

    Why not overclocking? Than u can get a cheaper chip and spend the extra money on something else, like GPU or SSD.
  4. What case?

    im just not going too, im not hardware savvy. i also have a limited budget for this around $350. and i already have my gpu! gtx 560 ti.
  6. Try getting a motherboard with 2 pcie x16 slots for SLI. That will save you $$ in the future once gtx 560 Tis get cheaper and you have trouble running games with a single card.

    If you're not overclocking then consider getting an Ivy Bridge i5 3450.
