I'm going to build a new computer after Christmas with a focus on gaming. I'm upgrading from an Asus G73-SW laptop. I have a budget of about 1300$ (somewhat flexible). I was wondering if this is a good start in terms of parts. I don't need an OS, optical drive or PSU. As well I really like the NZXT switch case All opinions and suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Asus Maximus Gene V
Memory: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Boot Drive: SanDisk Extreme 120GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive
Video Card: Gigabyte GTX670 OC 2GB Windforce x3
Case: NZXT Switch 810
Switch 810 - excellent choice. One of the best out there right now. However I'm not crazy about the motherboard choice. No reason to purchase a motherboard that small for a case that big though. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
