Its over budget now but the parts are a little more solid. If you want you can knock the CPU back down to a 6300. The ram is a dollar cheaper and it is dual channel. I like the NZXT case better than cooler master(for looks and cable management) and it is cheaper, your call tho. and went with the 212 EVO/ removed the thermal paste. Putting the 7 dollars into the cpu cooler will yield more cooling than the paste would.

edit: oh and i bumped up the motherboard, has 4+2 VRMs instead of just 4. Better for overclocking and overall the mobo has better features.

212plus is 1 degree cooler than 212evo. if he has a 1080p resolution would be better HD 7870 than a better cpu, 500gb for 56 when 1gb costs 60usd? nzxt source 210 when 212evo is 159mm height and wouldnt fit

My friend's build has a 212 evo with a source 210, i promise it fits. The games he listed aren't very graphically intense at all, he will be better off with a better CPU than GPU for a homework/day to day computer. The 500GB was already in there by him, I assumed he thought he wouldn't need the other 500GB even tho it is a little silly.

That build look awesome to me. It should definitely be enough for those games.

Like Wakalakaz mentioned (and it's more of personal taste)... I like the NZXT Soure 210 case as well, was about to get that myself. I don't like the white version though, hah

I also want that MSI Twin Frozr!

Hello, thanks for all the suggestions guys. Decided to drop abit more money on the build, might aswell.

Added a Hyper 212, another 4GB for a total of 8GB dual channel, bumped up to a MSI 7870 2GB and changed to the NZXT source 210 Elite Black. $545 after rebates. But it's a better build that my original one for not much more smile.gif
