I'll give you the list of parts I'm going to order for my computer. I'm using my computer for the same reasons. Here it is:

CPU: Intel i5 processor

GPU: Radeon hd 6950

RAM: Corsair Vengence 4GBx2

MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP HDMI

PSU: OCZ ZS Series 750W

Case: Cooler master 922

wireless adaptor: $50



CPU: $220
GPU: $260
RAM: $45
PSU: $100
MOBO: $150
Case: $100
Adapter: $50
SSD: $90
cooler: $20
Total: $1035

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 :)

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?

I honestly like the HAF 912 better than the HAF 922 due to better/easier cable management.
