CPU :Intel Core i7-3770K Quad-Core Processor 3.5 GHz 8 MB Cache LGA 1155 - BX80637I73770K
[Is this the best CPU that I can get for around $250 to $400 dollars] that will make sense. Any recommendations?
Case: Which case do you recommend from the two belows and which power supply should I buy for Case B (I think case A has PS)
CASE A) Cooler Master HAF XM - Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 Ports and X-Dock (RC-922XM-KKN1)
That CPU is about the best CPU you can get period. And the MoBo is excellent. RAM you really don't even need 16gigs I wouldn't worry about 32 for another 5 years atleast, get G.SKILL Ripjaws or something from Corsair. Good SSD, allow me to recommend WD Caviar Black 1TB for HDD also.
As for the case I'm not sure I would personally get either of those, but probably the Corsair because of the included fans.
I like the 600T better. Don't get me wrong, I like both of them, to me the haf xm is the best haf out there but I prefer the looks of the 600T a bit more. Function and performance wise, both should be fairly equal though the haf xm might have more functionality and flexibility without having to mod the case.
I prefer G.skill for memory, can easily recommend the RipjawsX or RipjawsZ
Buy a good quality psu. Choose from either Corsair, seasonic or antec. I suggest the seasonic x660 or the corsair HX650
