Assuming you are using it just for gaming...
for the case, ill say get HAF 922 or even the 932 if you can afford it....
change the CPU to a 2600K cause of the hyperthreading.... up to you...
for the ram... just get 4gb or even 6gb,... that'll be plenty till you are doing video editing,etc
for the gpu, go for 560ti and SLI later on..... again if you can afford it.....
if you get all or some of these parts, ill say your pc will be good for anything you throw at it....(in a limit!!!)

Hey ,

The GPU is not something.... go for 560
RAM- unless you will install 64 bit buy 4 GB....
Case? i bought the CM 690 II Advanced
HDD- go on SSD as primary and HDD for data.

All my suggestions are in case you can afford it

Get a haf type case or a Antec Lanboy. I believe Lanboy has greater potential over HAF in terms of cooling.

no to the 2600k, no to the 560 ti, and i feel i need 8gb, since 4gb right now is always 75% +
the 560 ti is more than a 5850 but i dont need that much performance, if anything i will get a 5870 instead

I just really like the look of this case, and a full tower will leave me plenty of room to upgrade but the odd part is the window version is $20 less than the solid door
