Default Need Gaming PC built // $800-900 Budget. ~ Please Help. :3

I'm currently using an outdated computer and I think It's time to finally buy a new one.
My budget is about $900, I might be able to push it a lil' with the help of my parents, but don't count on it.

I'll be using the machine for gaming & the occasional video editing. [Once every month orso]
I will probably be overclocking it.

I'm not really a fanboy, but all my other builds have been AMD & I liked it.

A mobo with an integrated GFX card would be handy, but not Necessary.


Sumarry:
  • Mainly for gaming.
  • Overclocking.
  • $900 Budget.

Another EDIT: The HD5850 is out of my budget [Everything is much more expensive over here & I can't order from newegg] I'll probably go with an 5770

EDIT Again; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...0Hundred%20ATX is this a good case? I can get it on sale in the local store for the next 2 weeks.

EDIT; Yet again: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119196 This case is on sale in a different store close to where I live, is it any good? It has 3 installed fans & Place for 2 more, should be good for OC'ing, right? & I like the black/red colors.

Where is here? As well is the budget USD, Pound, Euro or any other currency or did you previously do a the conversion? This would help pick out parts in the appropriate donomination for each item for it to be within your budget and be sure you get the best machine withing your budget.

Also Ive heard good things about both those cases, so i believe they are both decent cases, But maybe another member of the site can give yu a first hand experience with them.

Here = Belgium.
NewEgg doesn't ship to europe.

About the currency, I actually have €800-900 To spend, but for Example. a $800[Approx €650] machine on newegg would cost €800 here in Belgium.
