Parts Not Required: keyboard, Mouse, Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, NCIX

Country: United States of Americans

Parts Preferences: Mid tower ATX, Intel, Might go with 600 series GPU. Z77 Mobo.

Overclocking: Yes, in future. So I can buy a good a CPU cooler later.

SLI or Crossfire: Absolutely not.

Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: A case window would be nice, I would like a case with quiet fans if possible, or I can just buy rubber mounts. I don't need bling in place of performance, so if we can't have both performance is what i want. I will be slowly upgrading this. I would like it to be able to play BF3 on ultra/high at about 45-50 fps.

Just a preliminary list of things I might put in it:

i5 2500k

GTX 570/ GTX 650 ti/ GTX 660 ti.

Well reviewed z77

    You seem to already have the main parts picked out, so wait till the day before your ready to buy and post this.

    Any suggestions we might offer as far as models and deals will be totally different in 1 month.
  2. Oh, did I not make it clear I was looking for alternate build advice? I was not completely sure about this one and I was simply looking for other ideas.
