Sure, but they're all at least $90 more.
We can easily downsize on the case considering I don't really care if it's fancy. lol
That line has a good rep for air-flow, though. Asmile

Also forgot the motherboard.

The Antec 900 also has a good reputation.

Also isn't that motherboard still AMD? :(

Yeah, if you want an intel chip, you'd need an intel board, too. So in that case:

But honestly, budget PCs don't get intel stuff. Adissapoint

Hmm I probably don't need a 60gb SSD do I? Since I just want it for the OS I can probably go down to 30gb?
Opinions?

If you go intel, you can do the ssd caching thing and it won't really matter how large the drive is. the two drives will act like one. So sure, that can save roughly $13.

~$117 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128502

$200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116507

$200 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130604

$100 http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000I5JHB0/

$60 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020

$47 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227510

$90 http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B004IZN3YI/

This would be a brand new list. GPU took a huge hit, though.

lol I spent about 1200 on mine.

given that my gpu was 300+. crazy.

if ur budget is 800 u might have sacrifice something for low-tier.

namely ur cpu/gpu.

Bio's list is good, although i think he forgot the ram. Get 8GB since its mad cheap.

Based on the cpu Bio suggested, here are some combo deals to save you some cash.
The cpu also comes with a free blu-ray burner.

Agreed.

As you know, BF3's pretty intense on the physics. Having four discrete cores is better than two with hyperthreading. It depends on what resolution he's playing on, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

I'll tell you right away, drop the Seagate drive, they're awful.

Pay the extra money for a Western Digital. It's well worth it.

I thought you had a smaller budget?

Lol, looks good, im fucking jealous of that 670 you're getting.

You should get ram with a 1600 speed instead. Its like a $3 difference.

I think the gtx 670 is a good deal, just got mine from the mail today.

I dont think the 690 will drop a lot, alteast not more than 100 euros.
My new pc below, only have the GPU atm, ordering the other stuff on monday.
Code:

  CPU         Intel Core i5-3570k
  MOBO   ASUS P8Z77-V LE
  CPU C    Thermalright True Spirit 120
  RAM       8GB Corsair Vengeance 1,600MHz LOW PROFILE / Volt
  VGA       Asus GTX670-DC2T-2GD5
  PSU        Sea Sonic m12II-620Bronze
  HDD1     Crucial m4 128GB (already owned)
  HDD2     Seagate Barracuda, 2TB 7200rpm 64mb
  CASE     Fractal Design Define R3


Is seagate that bad? Western digital has alot of bad reviews just like the seagate. Any HDD recommendations? Never really bought a HDD.

I'd get the Thermalright True Spirit for the cooler. Much cheaper and not as bulky while giving the same cooling power. I wish they had this thing when I bought my cooler. It was twice the price and doesn't really do any better. Also found your PSU for a dollar cheaper than newegg. Adur
