I plan on driving to Microcenter within the next 4 hours to pick up my CPU, Mobo, & GFX card (listed below). I'd like any suggestions on additional parts to purchase, particularly any that I should pick up while there vs ordering online. I had hoped to have more time to prepare but I just found out I have to make the hour drive anyhow & the parts just happened to come back in stock.
I'd like very much to keep the rest of my budget as low as possible. Any money I can save will go to finding a small 60-90gb SSD.
As stated previously I plan on playing MMOs mostly on my HDTV until I purchase a nicer monitor. I'd prefer a budget case that is as discrete/cool/quite as possible. This is my first build so all other purchase choices I'll base purely off your suggestions. I have no idea which case to pick, what PSU is the best deal (& will support future xFire), or what RAM (brand/speed/timings) I should be looking for...
