This is the setup a guy gave me, and i was wondering if i could swap out the core i3 with a core i5, the $190 one on newegg.
Here it is:
Case: Anatec 300 - $65
Power Supply - Corsair GS 600 - ($70 got a sale at Best Buy) $90 on newegg
Motherboard - Asus P8Z68- LE - $130
CPU - i3 2120 - $130
Video card - Radeon 6870-$160 (used from Ebay)
Ram - G Skill 8GB DDR3- $37
windows 7 64 bit - ($10 off code on newegg) $100
Even better, I got windows 7 Professional for free from my college via the MSDN Academic Alliance through my school, and its just a piddly community college, so chances are if you're a student, or know someone who is, its available to you.
