Hey guys! So I need some advice on my build here..

CPU: Intel Core i5 2400
GPU: Inno3d GTX 560 Ti 1GB
MB: Asus P8H61-M LE USB3
RAM: G.Skill RipJaws X 2x4Gb Dual Channel 1333
PSU: Seasonic S12II 520W
Case: NZXT Source 220 or Tempest 210
HDD: Seagate 500GB 7200

I will try to afford a 2500 but non k, since im not gonna OC at all.
I could drop down to an i3 if needed.
This mobo has USB 3.0 and so does the both the cases, so it will be a bit future proof.
Will my PSU have enough power and cables? (12V and stuff like that)
Which case will do me better?
Will this setup handle games at 1080p? (ArmA II, DOTA2, Skyrim)

Sorry I didnt fill up the sticky, was typing this on an iPad, thing was too long to copy-paste. XD

Buying here: http://www.tipidpc.com/useritems.php?username=PCHub
For the GPU and CPU: www.pcx.com.ph
(max budget: Php40000, around $900)

Don't drop down to i3, you will loose turbo. Theres not that much difference between 2400 and 2500k unless you are overclocking.

I have the same graphics card but weaker processor and memories on one of my computers and it runs new titles fine, just don't expect to have them at full detail with high AA and so on.

Your PSU will have enought power and cables. I was worried about the 560 Ti 2x 6pin connectors at first but they are there.

Both of the cases use the same inside carcass so theres no real difference about these two besides the looks.

The only real issue I can see is that the motherboard has no internal USB 3.0 pins and the cases have 1.

That should work well. I plan to use the same motherboard on my son's build. MSI B75A-G43 is another cheap B75 motherboard.

Not available around here, sadly. :(

Doesn't really matter what motherboard you use(and even what LGA 1155 chipset). Just get the cheapest possible that has atleast one internal USB 3.0 header. Everything else is irrelevant if you don't plan to OC, use iGPU, RAID, SLI/CrossFire and so on.
