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.

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.

Any 8GB 1600 RAm will be fine and find a case that you like that fits the mobo.

here are some cheaper cases than the above one :

HAF 922 loved by many -$100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Corsair 400R -$100

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?
