Default New PC build $1300

Budget was supposed to be $1200 for everything, but i think a little bit of a stretch wont hurt... Needs to include everything from monitor to mouse. General use and gaming.

A quality case will last you several builds + a few extra I love my case now its a Lian Li so out of your budget I would assume.A case/psu's are investments whilst the rest of your components will need to be replaced in a couple of years if you want to play the latest games in 2 years time. I would get a Lian Li or silverstone case as I find the other brands a bit flashy and blary like a boy racer only half -assed on quality.

If you can't stretch that budget then the previous post has some very good cases which have great cooling. It is you whom has to live with it so the best moethod is to go newegg set the price range then try and find a case you could live with (visually) post it here and we will tell you whether its actually any good...

i have the same case from 2 builds ago...

this one is a build for my brother. he'll just give away the computer in a couple of years. $1200 was supposed to be the limit, so im making 1300 the new one. what would be a better case and what would need to be sacrificed to make up for it?
