GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
EVGA 560 Ti - PCI Express 2.0 x16
System Requirements
500 Watt or greater power supply (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 30 Amps.)
Power Connector
2 x 6 Pin
Dual-Link DVI Supported
Yes
HDCP Ready
Yes
Card Dimensions
9" x 4.38"

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge
LGA 1155

I will be using 8gb (2x4gb) ddr3


My problem is that I cannot find a decently priced + aesthetic (not gaudy) case, motherboard, and power supply that will last a few years.

It's ruining me.

Any experts have any specific links?

Why did you choose the i5-2400 over the i5-2500k?

That is a VERY NICE case, but it looks a little big. I only plan on one hard drive, and probably not even a DVD drive, as my win 7 ultimate is on a bootable USB.

in any event, it has the build quality I'm looking for but I was wondering if there are any that are smaller than this for less money? 100$ seems to be an awful lot to spend on a case.

if you want a smaller case you'll need a smaller motherboard.....which oddly enough will prolly cost more.....the case i pointed out is whats called a midtower.....just big enough to fit a fullsize atx board.......however there are some budget ones ou t there......how about...........
