Re: First Build, 1k Appx.
thats an awesome case, but... with budget builds, you want to focus as much money on components that have processing power as much as possible, IE, CPU, GPU and RAM, so i would suggest ditch the HAF 932, and get a less expensive mid size case save $100, and get a smaller HDD save $60, then use the money saved from the case and hdd and upgrade your processor to an i7.
also, im not sure, someone will have to agree/correct me, you need more than a 500watt powersupply.
