tbh, that 5770 will be an epic weak point in the build. For that budget, I definitely would've gotten a 5850 and sacrificed a bit on the other components.

Build looks good overall... why such an expensive case?

No, I don't think you could.

you really didn't need a full tower for that build... I would've saved the money to upgrade video.

eh... whatever its bought now. Its still awesome.

What?

You mean a pre-built? No. That was good pricing. I just put a priority on graphics, not a case.

If you haven't opened the box yet, you might wanna consider this. http://www.mwave.com/mwave/skusearch...iteria=BA24350

That is the case I have. free lcs basically.

I think it's fine. You can just xfire another 5770 later on. With the i7, there's only a couple of games that the 5770 can't max, and they're not even that popular compared to things like Couter Strike and MW2.

Full towers are great if you have the room for it. Much easier to work with.

^ Oh I agree... I have a full tower as well, but I would rather have a better video card than a bigger case.

The Armor lcs is about the best deal on a full tower I have ever seen. So glad I got that over a 900.
