CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103913
GPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150517

I always enjoy buying top of the line XD

Now what motherboard would be recommended? I game, A LOT! Also what PSU? Take a look at my old rig, see if there is something there that should be kept instead of sold, because I'm going to sell that hunk of a machine.

Lastly, I want a decent case. I hate the Antec case I have now. I dislike all the little things I have to do just to get inside and fix something. I want tool-less, and seamless. Don't care about the brands. Also if a smaller case is possible, sweet! My room is always pretty cool(temp wise). Heaters don't work in the winter and AC blast everyday in the Summer. And any other suggested parts are welcome. Such as RAM, cooler, etc..
Can I why you won't be overclocking? Sorry, just a curious mind in action.

I've had bad experiences, lol. My own fault of course, but that is why I don't want to attempt it again.

That case looks awesome. Do you know if there is a case very similar to that with the hard drive feature, where you can just plop a HD in the bay and it automatically connects? I seen it on a computer at my store before. But other than that I love that case so far.

For the mobo-get any one of these
1>asus crosshair4 formula
2>asus m4a89td pro
3>asus m4a89gtd pro
Two things, what is pst?

And... What advantage does one board have over the others of the three you mentioned? They all say things in a foreign language to me when I look at the specs. "Turbo Unlocker ... Core Cracker .. Turbo Evo Keys..etc" lol

Edited: Whoops, meant to edit this in to my last post, sorry for the double..

TEMPEST EVO best high end case for price
1100T not worth $30 over 1090T unless doing suicide runs at 5Ghz

That case doesn't seem bad. But I would probably prefer the Cooler Master case since it has the majority of things on the front. Control the LED, fan speeds, and more USB ports.

Now about RAM? I was thinking of getting Ripjaw.

Also, this is a kind of feature I'm looking for into a case as well:

You should wait for bulldozer (few months away) and the newer 6990 (dual gpu goodness) there are just to many new releases coming in the Q1 and Q2 to buy a old phenom II architecture...it would be a waste...wait a while

Price on the new CPU coming out? Same with 6990? And how would you compare them to the ones I currently have selected.
