Hey guys, this is my first custom build (not first computer). Originally I wanted something really awesome, but then I slept on it for a few weeks and have come to the conclusion that I really don't need top of the line, because I don't play demanding games, and my monitor is only 1440x768.

Let me know what you guys think, and how I can improve / save money. I don't have a price in mind, I was just trying to come up with the best bang for my buck system. I also would like to stick with Nvidia because I play a lot of Blizzard games and apparently they favor Nvidia over AMD.

The games I am concerned about are WoW, LoL, Diablo3, and Minecraft. Then I like to play some other games off and on like TF2, BF3, SC2, and will play the new Counter Strike.

I am pretty sure this desktop will be pretty sufficient maxing these games out, given the 1440x768 resolution, but I am a total noob when it comes to CPU's. Is the i3-2100 enough? Or is it going to be the bottleneck of my system?

CASE - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I have a 120gb vertex 2, and portable DVR-RW already that I will use for this machine.

Final cost is $444.95 USD

Thanks everyone.

There are some things I would change.

Get a Cooler Master Elite 430 instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Change your GTX 560 to this one instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The Dual Fan version isn't all that great; get's really loud.

Also, change your PSU to this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The GTX 560 and the HD 6870 are nearly identical in performance, go with whichever one you like.

I think that just like he said, nVidia cards work better with Blizzard games. Look at the SC2 benches.

Any reason you would spend more on that case/psu? I also chose the other 560 because it was clocked higher and I don't know anything about overclocking.

Yep, I actually had the 6870 in there, and then I started browsing others Diablo 3 builds, and the consensus seemed to be that Nvidia cards seem to perform significantly better then AMD in Blizzard games, and that was good enough for me to switch considering I love Blizzard games, WoW being my favorite game.

Nobody has mentioned... Will this machine be able to max these games out with some quality FPS? i3-2100 will be okay?

I said 1440x768 before but now that I think of it, its 1440x900 actually.

Yes, you'll definitely be able to max out those games at that resolution :) 

You can keep the PSU that you chose, but definitely change the case. It's ridiculously low quality.

Good Luck!
