Hey guys I have asked a ton of questions and stuff but here goes. I am at $1,695.91 On my newegg.com build my max target was $3000-3500 in price but due to some stuff I only have $1865. My build so far is as follows.

PowerColor AX7950 3GBD5-2DH Radeon HD 7950.

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"

ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor w/Speakers & HDMI.

Mushkin Enhanced MKNPSJL800 800W ATX12V.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB.

GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA.

Intel Core i7-3930K.

XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler.

Arctic Silver AA-1.75G Thermal Compound.

Case ????


Ok So I could not get all the best parts like I wanted but i refuse to have anything but the 3930k. I need the best case i can get for lol what little money I will have left. I was looking at the Corsair 600t But I really want the 800d but that puts me well above what I can afford at the moment. I do not plan to Overclock anything. I will run this all at stock. Any idea would be great this is going to be my gaming pc and my gaming pc only. I am aware I do not need this much power but I just gotta have it. :D

PSU, CPU cooler and monitor don't match the quality of the CPU/MB/GPU.

Well that is what my budget allows at The moment. but if you can show me a better deal on new egg then go for it.

P.S I had to make cuts here and there to get everything into my budget window. I will not ever overclock my CPU so the cooler should work just fine.As for Monitor yeah it is crap but if i add two more down the road that will be just fine for me.

Much better PSU for less money: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

All you really need is a good quality 550W like the Seasonic S12II 520W: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But if you are seriously going to CF the 7950 then get the Corsair.

Better CPU cooler option for an extra $5: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
If you're not going to OC, then the stock cooler is sufficient. Less sexy, but sufficient.

RAM: Get 8GB of value RAM from a good mfr: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
No current games can use over 8GB and spending more for higher-end RAM is a waste if you're not OCing. It's an easy upgrade to 16GB later on.
