Hello,

I am just getting into building my own pc and I have been researching lately on what parts to buy however am feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the information. I am building this PC to do three things. Play Some modern games(Diablo 3/GW2/League of Legends), Browse the web/stream movies, and the occasional dvd rip.

I haven't chosen between AMD/Intel and I hear the Intel is better for performance however I am working with a budget of roughly $500 CAD(Canada).

I currently have a case(Thermaltake Commander Snow edition) but, that is about it. Please help me guys!

Yes my friend! I did it! Do you need an OS though?

Oh snap! thanks however I guess I left some stuff out...I have Windows 7 Genuine and a 24" Viewsonic monitor so those aren't a factor in my build. Saving that money I want to be able to have a full ATX board for upgrades in the future. Any Suggestions?

BETTER!! You can upgrade to the quad cores of Intel when the i3 -3220 isn't cutting it anymore but if its gaming then there would be no more reason to upgrade taht i3 -3220.
