I'm going for around a $900 build but have about $700 at the moment. I was thinking of just doing the build and purchasing a graphics card later on.

Case(119.99) - NZXT Phantom Full Tower - http://www.amazon.com/Crafted-Series-Tower-Steel-Chassi...

Motherboard(104.99) - ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 Intel Z68 ATX DDR3 1066 Intel - LGA 1155 Motherboard - http://www.amazon.com/ASRock-Z68-PRO3-GEN3-Intel/dp/B00...

CPU - ($199.99 on Amazon, can get cheaper at MicroCenter) - i5-2500k - http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-2500K-Quad-Core-Processo......

Memory - ($50.45) - G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1333MHz (PC3-10666) 240-Pin. Desktop Memory F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL - http://www.amazon.com/G-SKILL-Ripjaws-PC3-10666-240-Pin...

PSU - ($54.99) - LEPA B550-SA 550W SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Are these parts good/is this a good build?

Any ideas on a graphics card?

P.S. I hope to order most if not all of the parts from Amazon versus Newegg as I can get free shipping.

Thanks.

Right now best performance for price is in the nvidia gtx 670 which keeps up with 680 quite well. Nice motherboard deal verbalizer.

I really want the case that I chose, but I'll consider the other two combos.

As for the graphics card.. I'm thinking something around $200.

Thanks.
