Wanting a cheapish gaming build. Good enough to be able to play BF3 while looking decent. Trying to stay in a decent price range. As far as LGA socket I'm thinking 1155? 2011 is too expensive and 1155 is better/newer than 1366 and or 1156?
Approximate Purchase Date: Soon. Black Friday Sales

Yep. You can even put 2 GTX560ti's on 650w since you won't be overclocking! Ram is cheap because it is currently on sale.
Good luck! Don't get the ATI equivalent since 6950 don't fit on the case.
Thanks, good advice. My only concern is the Antec greenwatts psu. I had one of these and it starting having a very high pitched squeal after about 3 months. Had to replace it. Are these not reliable? Or did I have just an unlucky bad experience?
It's an unlucky experience. Antecs are one of the most popular PSUs because of their quality.
