$850 Gaming PC Final Build

So I think this will be my build, I won't be purchasing this for a few months so prices may drop and I may upgrade some parts, but as of now, this is what I want. I'm not sure if everything is compatible with each other, so if you know, it would be great if you told me :D Also if you recommend me any parts that would be great too. Thanks.

Thanks for any help. The total is around $850, I think a little less. Also, do you think I should downgrade the CPU to like an i5-2500k?

  1. Looks great. I suggest the Haf 912 or Guardian 921.
  2. Alright thanks, I'll keep that in mind, I don't think I'll get the Guardian 921 because my friend has that, I want to be somewhat original haha :D I really do like the look of the Haf 912, but it only has 2 fans, is that a big deal?
  3. That case looks boss! I think I will get that one :D And that case fan I have in my parts, will that work for it? So that I can have 3?
  4. Hmm, I may get that NZXT Phanton, although I'm going to look around just a bit longer, thanks for all your suggestions :D
  5. Good case, but I personally hate the look of it. The Phantom looks infinitely better, but it's my opinion.
  6. It's all really down to looks. These cases you're linking will fit your needs. Just find one that you like. Once you've narrowed it down, post in the cases subforum for advice. A lot more experienced with cases.
  7. Alright, thanks for all your help, have a great night/day :P
  8. You too.
