Maybe go with a build like this: Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - $59.99 PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 - $89.99 ($20.00 MIR) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H - $119.99 CPU: 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-3570K - $249.99 Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - $33.99 RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw 1600MHz 1.5V - $46.99 SSD: 128GB Crucial M4 - $127.99 HD: 2TB Seagate Barracuda Green - $119.99 Optical: Lite On DVD Burner - $17.99 Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 670 - $399.99 OS: Windows 7 Home Premium - $99.99 Total: $1,228.99 The PSU will give you a bit more breathing room and then you also have more to add a nice monitor, keyboard and mouse. I usually don't include those things on builds as they're almost entirely personal preference. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
