  1. Assuming a 1080p monitor, you could probably do it for about $1000-1200, depending on storage and excluding monitor and software.

    Can you come up with a build for me, and can you include a moniter.
  3. Have you been looking at anything? I hate to do ALL the work.

    I'd base it around a i5-3570k, Z77 motherboard and a GTX670 or Radeon 7970.

    I decided that i was going to order from one website and they dont have antec stuff or the patriot ram.
  10. Any 8GB 1600 RAm will be fine and find a case that you like that fits the mobo.

    I was told i needed a better case for the gpu and I included a wifi card.
    http://www.prisguide.no/liste/137352/simple
  24. Yes I would advise if you can get a better case DO IT! To see such great hardware in a cheap case is sad in my eyes but hey if it cant fit in your budget we work with what we got.

    My recommendation for cases:

    Corsair great company love everything they do and make I currently have this Case myself
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139009 - $130

    here are some cheaper cases than the above one :

    HAF 922 loved by many -$100
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197

    Corsair 400R -$100
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139008

    Rosewill BlackHawk -$90
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147107

    Corsair 300R - $90
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139016

    There are many more just look around on newegg or whatever your preferred site is

    That BlackHawk.. I like the case a lot but mostly because the blue LED fans being such a nicer color than most but the fans suck according to the reviews ='(

    EDIT: Does anyone know if there is a side panel with a bigger window that will work with the BlackHawk?
