Something like this? Newegg.com - OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

$80 after rebate.

Screws will be provided with your case.

Uhhh... Intel motherboard with an AMD processor.

Check out the one MoM originally posted (post #6 on the first page).

If this is purely/primarily for gaming I'd also consider a Phenom II X4 980 or FX-4100, both are a bit cheaper.

Which one would you prefer for gaming purposes? The Phenom II X4 980 or FX-4100 ?

Oh yeah, and about the case, my friend told me that its too small. any cheap cases with fan that can fit my items?

If you were ready to drop $190 on the 1100T and don't want to change anything else, I'd get the 980 for $20 less.
The FX-4100 is ~$70 cheaper and should perform around a 965-970, but you would need an AM3+ motherboard.

Going from the list above, personally, I'd go:
-$70 AMD FX-4100
-$70 MSI 990XA-GD55 AM3+
+$10 Rosewill Challenger

Was going to suggest an upgrade to the video card, but you seem to be missing some things:
+$21 Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Burner
+$100 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OEM

Also, Solid State Drives are much faster, but also quite a bit smaller for the same price.
Do yourself a favor, go to My Computer and right-click on Local Disk (should be C: ).
If the used space is 60GB or less ignore this, but if its quite a bit over 60GB I'd suggest a regular mechanical hard drive for more space.

I'm just looking at this as a totally new build.
If you're re-using the hard drive and DVD/CD Drive in your current computer feel free to ignore those suggestions, though I assume you will still need a new copy of Windows 7.

@ eric2523, please don't double post, if you have something else to add to the conversation and no one has posted a reply since your last post (within a 24 hr. period), please use the edit button (looks like a pencil) to add it to your previous post.

Default Re: What motherboard will be good for this? Also, about how much fps will Skyrim have with it?

you might want to consider paying a little bit more for a better case. also look for one that doesnt have a power supply already included. it's pretty well guaranteed that if you get a case with a powersupply included that it wont be that great. it also doesnt include any fans...

maybe start from here
