I wouldn't purchase a $100 case on a $900 build - put that money in the GPU. Do you need monitor/keyboard/mouse/OS because if not the build will look completely different.

Check out this list. They are all quality components, but you may have to look at different sites to find the lowest prices. If you follow the link with breakdown by merchant, you see the difference. I saw you already picked a case. When I built mine, I was planning on a HAF case, but then saw this Corsair and I love it! Spacious, well built.

Sorry for not pointing it out , I do not need the monitor/keyboard/mouse/OS as i already have them.
I do not mind changing the case from the cooler master haf 922 to something different.
I should also point out that i would like to upgrade the computer from time to time over the years as to accommodate the required specs for playing the games.

I also like the cooler master haf 912 case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But i am open to others. i don't care how the case looks as long as it provides the best optimum performance for the games i'll be playing.

I vouch for the 912. I have it. It is an amazing case at an amazing price. Has a ton of room inside! Lots of HD and SSD bays. also a ton of space for video cards. You will never have to worry about how long your card is. Case also has decent cooling and expansion slots for more fans

Andy's build is solid, as well. I have different brand preferences, but really that's almost a matter of taste. You can pretty much pick and mix from either of our builds, I would say.

I'm not sure why a GTX480 was suggested. They are a bit out of date and I think you'd be much better of with a 7850, which has tested great (see recent TH review) at a very nice price.
