Case: Rosewill Thor V2 ATX Full Tower ~~ $129.99
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570k Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz ~~ $219.99
HD: Western Digital WD RE4 500gb 7200 RPM ~~ $99.99

~~Have found an SSD for the same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: ASUS GTX650TI GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB PCI Express 3.0 x16 ~~ $159.99
PSU: Seasonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready ~~ $89.99
RAM: GSKILL Ripjaw Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240 Pin ddr3 ~~ $44.99
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX ~~ $184.99
CD Drive: LITE-ON Black 4X Blu-ray Reader SATA Model iHOS104-06 - OEM ~~ $24.99

Total Price: $954.92 (on a slight budget)

A little note about the case: I realize that in levels of quality, the case sort of outweighs the other components. This is simply because of future upgrades which I anticipate to be soonish. However, if the case would cause a problem please let me know. It just has features that I like/looks good to me/well equipped for my future upgrades.

-- Should I go for the SSD or HDD

Thanks a ton ahead of time!!

Here you go. Don't know if you plan to overclock the CPU. If not, you could go with the i5-3750 (no K) and a cheaper motherboard and loose the CPU cooler. This would definately get you to your budget. I left out the case. A mid tower case will serve just fine for upgrading. I have 3 GPU, 4 HDDs, water cooling, and many case fans all in a mid tower case. No problem. Temps are good. and everything fits.

Thanks! Since this is my first build and since I really don't have a clue as to how to overclock, I don't foresee myself overclocking my cpu anytime soon. So will getting a CPU without the "K" could I get the price down?
