Hello. Im looking for a build that will not exceed the 780 $ range. I know that I atleast want a 6770 in my MONSTOSITY MACHINE. But I'll get rid of it if the build exceeds 680 $

Order to greatest to least: gaming, gaming and yet more gaming ?

sli or crossfire: ROFL no

moniter resolution: meh 1440X900 or less I dont really see the differance between differant resolution's.

Overclocking: YES but only if it's a i5 2500k and it fits my budget.

Parts preferance: newegg or amazon, I dont trust any other's.

Additonal note's I want to fit a cooler master 922 case in there but there like 120 bucks rofl...or ill go with the xion classic case ....red. It's beast looking and fits 10.5 inch gpu's :D 

Thank you !

Hard to fit a monitor on that budget, but I own the one I linked and it's fine. Also I'm not sure the case will fit the GPU but I just used the Xion you mentioned - there's plenty of cases in the world around $60.

^ Why give him an H61 if you give him a 2500K, might as well get the 2400 and save to get a better GPU.

So I'm assuming you need a monitor?

If you think this is too much. Here is a cheaper monitor. But I don't suggest going with rebranded monitors.
E-Machines 21.5" $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
There is only one 1 egg review and that's pretty much why it has 3 Eggs. For such a low price, it's a solid deal since it is 21.5" and is 1920x1080.

aznshinobi is right, H61 and 2500K don't make sense together. Also MicroATX is unnecessary in a case that will fit ATX. I had a bunch of tabs open and linked the wrong one. The Gigabyte mobo that aznshinobi recommended is a far better choice and it puts my build around $800 before rebates.

The aznshinobi build doesn't include a hard drive, though.

This will total low enough for you to fit the OS into the budget.

The $500 SBM build proves that the 430CX would power this system.

Haha don't worry it'll work. The CX430 V2 has a 80+ certification. It'll do just fine.
