I'm building a gaming system later this year and won't to keep the price below $900. I am pretty well set with all the other parts but the PSU and case keep bothering me with what i need and price.

This is the build

Core = Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3 GHz ($220)

PSU = Antec TruePower TP-650Watt ($125)

Case = COOLER MASTER HAF 922 ($120)

HDD =Seagate 3.5" Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM ($56)

DVD = Samsung SATA 22x Black DVD RW ($20)

VGA = Powercolor 1GB 6950($209)

RAM = G.Skill Sniper 4G Kit (2Gx2) DDR3 1600($35)

Mobo = Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 ($140)

totals $925

I want at least a 650W PSU and a case that will fit the 6950 (11" i think)

I am from Australia here is the site i will shop from

Cases = http://www.msy.com.au/default.jsp?category=42

PSUs = http://www.msy.com.au/default.jsp?category=94

Thanks in advance

This is what I got. Keep in mind that the processor and graphics card are a combo. Memory and PSU are a combo, and so is the DVD and Hard drive. Without the monitor it comes to total of $850.

I just realized you are ordering from AUS. Try and see if they sell combo parts. Also, get a cheaper case, Mid ATX will do. The gigabyte z68a ud3 B3 should be cheaper for a Mobo. Try to go for a LiteOn burner they are usually cheaper. The HAF 912 should fit your graphics card.
