It's decent for the price but keep in mind large tower air coolers get very close to the top of the case. It might cause an issue with mounting a roof exhaust fan.

My gaming/folder's special:
  • CPU: $329 - Intel Core i7 2600K (2600K instead of 2500K for folding)
  • Motherboard: $150 - MSI P67A-GD53 (B3)
  • Case: $60 - Cooler Master HAF 912 (May want/need extra fans)
  • Graphics Card: $235 - Gigabyte GV-N560OC-1GI GTX 560 Ti (Nvidia for folding)
  • Power Supply: $80 - Antec TruePower TP-650 650W (great deal on Newegg right now)
  • Keyboard: $100 - Steelseries 6Gv2 (Mechanical Cherry MX Black)
  • Mouse: $70 - Logitech G500 (I Personally use and love it)
  • Cooler: $35 - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (great price/performance)
  • Optical Drive: $19 - Samsung SH-S223C DVD-RW
  • RAM: $50 - G.SKILL Ripjaw X 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3-1600 CL9 1.5V
  • Hard Drive: $65 - Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

Total: $1193

Sorry, over budget by a little. You can get a cheaper keyboard/mouse/case if you want, but once you type/play on a mechanical keyboard you'll never want to use anything else again. If you went with the HAF 912, you'll probably want to get a few extra fans to go with it. Some of the Yate Loon's are good and inexpensive.

Since I love going over budget, monitor:
  • LED: $225 - NEC E231W-BK 23" 5ms (recommended over Acer S211HLbd 21.5'' 5ms because it has height adjustment)

Noctua NH-D14 - $90
HAF 922 - $100
Corsair 650TX PSU - $90 ($80 after rebate)

Which brings you to $1115. You can downscale the case, or whichever part you feel like you don't need. This build should last you a long long time, as it's very solid. Have fun
all of that in my country is $1274
