I'd like to purchase it in 2 weeks. I will mostly be using it for gaming, surfing the internet. I'd like a i3 processor at the minimum. Overclocking doesn't really matter. The parts are being assembled in the united states.

I already have this case - Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case



If you could work around this, that would be great.
