Building a PC

Hi guys,

I am planning to make a custom computer for gaming (League of Legends (must), Max Payne 3, NBA 2K12+13 (must), The Sims 3 + all of its expansions (must), and pretty much more (eg. Assassin Creed 3)). I am still deciding on the parts I am going to get, but would like some more information on some if possible. As well, I am very open on opinions and changes!

For graphic cards, do AMD graphic cards (video card) work with Intel? I want it to be in the affordable price under $200 and do not really know what to get TBH.

Which of these cases should I get? I like the Storm Enforcer but I wasn't sure about its power supply (meaning it can only use those?)

Once I get a case, I will look at a good power supply (one that is very efficient), then I will look for a HDD and then if I want to, a SSD.

So am I missing anything? And what do you guys think so far?

Link please, but I TBH think with a I5- 2500K would be better than a i3.

Also it got to be a Canadian site (or newegg)

Not really, I am going to update this to show what I have changed and see if it is compatible with everything.
