  1. What's your budget? There's way better cases than what you picked and there's no reason not to go Ivy Bridge. And then switch out your RAM with something like Mushkin Blackline or G.Skill Ares.

    Yeah they're compatible but there's better choices you could make(as well as newer hardware) is what I'm trying to get at. If you're going to be paying any kind of money for a new system, you should be getting the latest and greatest. Only in rare circumstances do I recommend older hardware. For that budget I'd suggest something like this:
