Allow me try to explain my choices:

I selected the i5 4570 because you explicitly stated that you were not interested in overclocking, and because I wanted to squeeze into your $1100 budget very strictly. If you can spend a few more pennies, go for the 4670 without question.

The Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H motherboard is again because you will not be overclocking. Not to worry, this board will not allow that.

Picked 8GB of this Corsair ram because you will not be overclocking and you will not need any fancy heat-spreaders. 8GB is all you need to enjoy games now-a-days. Anything more is not useful.

128GB Crucial M4 SSD, because you wanted a monster. Adding a Solid State Drive to your system will dramatically increase boot speeds and game/application load speeds.

2TB storage for all of the goodies.

Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 because you get a very powerful graphics card with 4 free game coupons.

NZXT Source 210, nice case, keeps you within budget. (Not exactly sure if it will fit the graphics card.)

Seasonic 620W power supply to provide ample juice to your rig.

And a generic CD/DVD Writer, but I personally would never use it.

Depending on where you buy your parts you should be able to get them for about $1100.

Good luck and feel free to PM me with any questions. thumb.gif
