New Build

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Currently I have an MSI 580 gtx lightning and i5 2500k. I got the 580gtx for $369.99 from Amazon a few months ago and the i5 for 180 from a microcenter price match. I'm hoping to get some advice on the other parts to get a build under $1000 total but it doesn't have to be exact. I also already have the OS and a screen so I don't need those. I'd like this to be a gaming machine. Thanks in advance!

I could suggest you a good gaming case which in this case is the NSZT Phantom Premium Gaming case (

). My friend has it and he's satisfied with it. Just saying if you care about the case looking awesome and stuff.

I was actually hoping for the rest+what I have to be under $1000. What changes would you make if that were the case?

You can remove the SSD and change the H100 cooler to a Noctua d14. And it will still be a great system
