All the fun starts when you get your parts

And think about it. Would you rather go over budget, and get parts that you're going to be extremely happy about, or will you slack on it, just because you said you wouldn't go over budget, and then later have to buy the other parts that you didn't want to buy in the first place?

Budget cases like the HAF 912+ or the CM Storm Enforcer are really great cases. I personally like the Enforcer. It has mean looks and great airflow

That is true, i have way too many projects going on at once. I guess i will see how the temp runs with the case i already have.

Gaming wise how long do you think this set up will last? If it lasts around 3-5 years then its totally worth. If anything i guess i could SLI

Yeah, I would say around 3-5 years. My last build lasted around 4 years, and then I went Sandy Bridge.

You would get awesome improvement from SLI with GTX 560Ti's.

Especially if games games would support it just as well as a single card in the future.

Wouldn't recommend NZXT. Poor build quality (especially fans), and Cooler Master has way better airflow than any other in that price range.

NZXT has a service where they will give you the fans in the remaining slots for free in you NZXT case, but the last two times, I inquired for this, they told me that they would send the fans. Guess what? I never received them.

If i were to get a case it will be most likely the HAF 912+ very good reviews on newegg and it seems to have a lot of air flow.

I just placed the order for the galaxy gtx 560 ti!

Nice one! I think you'll be having great fun with your setup. You're gonna be very happy with the 560Ti, and to top it off, you can go SLI down the road, and be able to play roughly all the games maxed out

Good idea with the HAF 912+. You're goind to be very satisfied with it. If you add, say, a Cooler Master Megaflow Red LED 200mm fan at the top, and a Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm Red LED, you'll be having great airflow, and that top 200mm fan would be sufficient for exhausting the hot air

Remember to remove the upper HDD case, so the air from the front 200mm. fan would flow better towards the parts

I repped you for being very helpful with my build!

I will pick up some fans later on! Seeing how much my tower hit my wallet i'm going to hold back for now and see what kind of temps i am running!

Placed my order for
HAF 912 - $44.86
Hyper 212 plus - $27.43
CMPSU-650TX - $72.79
Biostar TP67XE B3 - $142.66

All i need now is just my ram, i should of jumped on the 2x4GB g.skill ddr3 1600 a couple of days ago!

My rig will end up around $752.26 around $152 over budget but oh well

Sorry, for taking so long to answer you!

But thanks for the rep

I'd say that's $152 over budget well spent. You'll be very happy!

You sure that's the 912+, and not the 912?
