Here is what I currently have built so far.

CPU Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core $214.99
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $27.05
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H ATX LGA1155 $124.99
Memory G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $38.99
Power Supply XFX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V $79.9

I seen a few decent cases here are 2 I seem to like so far, I would love any feedback or suggestions on anyone who has good experience with a gaming case. Thanks for the advice.

Out of the two, I would most likely choose the HAF 922 due to it's superior airflow (I personally HATE how it looks, though :lol: )

Here's another option :)  The NZXT Phantom 410

If you want something smaller and cheaper, get the NZXT Gamma Classic, and grab and extra 120 and an extra 140mm fan for intake and top output, respectively.

It's a mid-atx, but has room for everything you might want, and the features of a $100 case, with better airflow after added fans.
