Approximate Purchase Date: June 2012
Budget Range: Under 1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming/video editing

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, Gpu **My power supply is a 550 corsair**

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I dont care

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: I would like to use an AMD CPU (a intel is ok I guess) & I dont care about the motherboard

Overclocking:Maybe (I would like to overclock if it isnt to hard)

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I have a xfx 6870 2gb Gpu ( I dont plan on cross firing) and a 550 corsair power supply. I would like to base this computer around those considering I already have them. For Ram I want a 8gb ddr3 ( I already have it picked out). For my mb I am looking at the BIOSTAR TA990FXE AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard ( ) Please tell me if there is something better. I would prefer a mb with built in wifi since I do no have Ethernet in my room. For a Processor I am looking at the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor ( ) Please tell me if there is something better. I would like a liquid cooling system or air if you can find one that is quiet. I have the 1tb hdd picked out. I have a blue ray drive from my last pc.I also need a computer case that can fit everything (it doesnt have to be fancy). Can you please help me out with building the best gaming pc for my needs?

If you don't want a fancy case, the Corsair cases have good airflow and cable management.
