I don't know if you have looked around, but there are several cases from NZXT, Antec, Corsair, Cooler Master, and Silverstone. you should browse youtube for some reviews to see them with stuff in them. I love my 650D, but it's a bit pricy. You may want to look specifically at the Corsair 500R/400R, the Corsair 600T, the NZXT Phantom full tower, the Antec 300 two (very nice cheap case), Antec 900, CM Storm Enforcer, or the Silverstone Raven smile.gif it too me 2 months to choose my case, I had a bunch of hardware laying on my desk thumb.gif

I'm not sure about going mid atx of full tower. The corsairs are a bit to much for me. Right now I think my top 3 are the CM storm enforcer, cm 912(nice and cheap), and the nzxt phantom. I don't really see the benefit of getting a full tower

Sorry, but that's too cheap, even for me. And I don't want it sitting around until November

i know it out shooting ur budget by 150$ or so but yet think about it or go with a
480
Total $1360 out shooting by $160
but

pros
  1. 2tb hdd
  2. worlds fastest single gpu wink.gif
  3. a i5 2500k better then a 8120 atleast for its price/performance ratio, the 8120 consumes much more power from ur wall then 25ook
  4. low power RAMs which help u to clock ur RAMs to better frequency and better timings wink.gif
  5. with Asus ROG series Motherboard u get onboard Sound card which performs much better then the normal onboard sound cards


cons
  • u have to spend a 160$ more
  • m not leaning toward intel or AMD but when u go for a25ook u are missing eight cored monster which i think is not required for gaming a Quads enough for todays games wink.gif
  • CoolerMaster 912 relatively small case

or for a 1200$
here
480

I already have a 1 tb hdd so that brings down the price, also I'll probably cut back on everything slightly, especially the gpu. Plus a lot will change by my build time. Thanks for the feed back
