    I forgot to mention earlier, this build isnt for me, its for a friend and likes to have a fancy case. I tried talking him out of it but it didn't work :( Also will the i3 handle Skyrim and BF3 on High?

    Hello. According to tom's review i3 is clearly superior for those 2 games than any AMD has to offer:

    BF3:


    Skyrim:

  6. So is it okay if i use my original case?
  7. The motherboard you included in your build has bad reviews, can you put another one in for a similar price.

    The bad part about the d2h is that any dual slot video card will cover the data connections on the board. The s2h is only about $15 more and will not be covered.

    Well I was about to point a similar but I thought that 70$ would go off budget. MSI PH61A-P35 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130609 (this is an ATX not mATX ;p)
    But its similar to what you posted so I think its okie ^^
  12. that motherboard is perfect thanks.
