Default i5, GTX 460, 212+, 690 II, SSD with $850?

Do you think I could build a system similar to that with $850?

You might be able to pull that off, if you dont need a monitor and an OS.

I just completed a build with that case....it is very roomy and has nice wire management features....great case for the money....mine was $69 shipped

You can see some of its nice features here in this thread. PC Build With Pics

should I get the advanced or the Basic? I'd buy bigger fans if I got the basic. (probably)

don't forget about a motherboard. unless you've got one already, then as PP Mguire posted you'll be fine.

If you've got the money just get the Basic and buy some scythe s-flex fans for it. better air flow and quieter.

But buying better fans would make it cost more than the advanced?
I do need a 1156 motherboard and a PSU... lol
So then it is a no because a motherboard will probably be $130, and $100 for PSU.

I was looking at this XFX PSU
Thoughts?

And for the motherboard I've never been good at picking out a good one.

I could go with AMD, but I wanted to do Mixed Video Rendering and Gaming. What would be Best?
Eventually I want to add a PhysX card Like a 9600GT or GSO and a Intensity Pro by BlackMagic Deisn

they're basically the same case, and if you put the scythe fans in the basic it'll be better than the advanced with stock fans.

I was going to probably get the advanced because of the video card holder, Tool-less parts, etc.
