that was a fast response, except for the monitor that pretty much looks like some good stuff, ill be reading the reviews but they seem to all be 4 eggs or more. I appreciate it greatly, I'm building this basically FOR Skyrim and SWTOR so as long as it can run those 2 games (SWTOR doesnt need much) it's good stuff.

yeah I need a monitor, I sold my old computer set up a while back and am building a complete new setup, my room mate has like 5 computers sitting around, so with those he also has tons of mice and keyboards, so those aren't a big issue, but the tower and monitor need to be purchased pre december 20th lol, which is why i'll only have the 1500 dollar budget, possibly more but that price is for sure.

If possible, try and keep it under the 1500 mark, or right around it. if necessary ill just wait a week or 2 and buy the monitor, im sure there is a spare one, but yeah i'd like to try and keep it as close to 1500 as u can

Places to save money:
1) SSD not everyone needs one it just faster than a regular HDD
2) Motherboard can be changed to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for only $125
3) Drop HDD down to a 500GB if you want for $115
4) Drop PSU down to a 650 (I gave you a 750 for future SLI capability, even if you change the motherboard it can still SLI)
