Just completed it last night:

8GB DDR3 @ 2133 mhz Viper RAM
MSI Twin Frozr GTX 760 graphics card
Corsair H60 liquid cooler
128 gb corsair ssd (operating system and a few select other programs)

Mainly meant as a budget gaming rig. Hopefully my attached pic works. Any thoughts Rs appreciated!

Have an older 7200 rpm 400gb spin drive in there for basic storage, Samsung I think. Plan to upgrade that to a couple TBs pretty soon. Motherboard is an MSI 990fxa-gd80.

Welcome! That is a nice build for gaming. What case did you end up going with?

Just a basic Corsair 200R, was $39 at Fry's. Had to keep it relatively inexpensive but still get a decent case, figured it was a good option. Not very flashy but I will fix that on my next build.

A 7950 is cheaper and faster than the 760, and a hyper 212+ evo is cheaper and cools the same or a little better than the h60

For my htpc I almost went 8320 but found a killer deal on the FX 6300 + 990FXA-ud3 for $203

How much did your build cost and where did u get it from?

Everything was from Frys, cost just under 1,000 out the door so not too bad. Could have probably saved a bit here and there but was in a rush to get home and put it together.
