CPU Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core $223.79
CPU Cooler Corsair H100 92.0 CFM Liquid $99.99
Motherboard ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 $79.98
Memory G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $53.99
Storage Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM $69.98
Case Corsair Vengeance C70 (Black) ATX Mid Tower $89.99
Total: $617.72

this is what i have come up with so far. I am still missing a few parts. video card, cd drive, psu and a video capture card. The reason why i went with the H100 on this build is so that I can switch it with my CM 212 on my other rig
