I 'm going to be building a new desktop PC in the near future, primarily used for gaming and web surfing.
I am not planning on overclocking. Also I don't need SLI so I don't need a higher W PSU.
I just want to get the most reliable parts for my money. The components I am not sure about are the mb and the psu. I don't want to go my higher as this is pretty much my max budget. I don't care about case appearance so if there's a case that has better cooling / cable management please let me know.
