    This is a rough estimate, but you can easily save some money if you don't want the SSD, wireless adapter, use a haf 912 instead of 922, or wait on buying a different cpu cooler. I hope I helped a bit :)

    It has a ton of builds with different budgets.
  2. I am curious about the pros and cons as well as the differences between buying say HIM/Gigabyte vs. buying EVGA/Asus. Do HIM/Gigabyte offer adequate warranty and quality?
  3. I honestly like the HAF 912 better than the HAF 922 due to better/easier cable management.
