Smile Looking To Build First Cmputer

Hello,

I'm looking to build my first computer, and I'm looking for some help or guidance.
First off I'm looking for it to have the ability to run Battle Field 3(Gaming Computer) on high settings, i would also like a pretty cool case that has a see through side panel,and preferable something that lights the case up. Size is not a problem to me so if the case is big that would be fine, either is price, of course i don't want to be spend 5000$ i would like to keep i reasonable of course like anyone would.

I live in Canada and would probably use Newegg to purchase the equipment, unless you provide a better or cheaper source.

I apologize if i put this in the wrong forum, it my first post and i tried to find the correct spot, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Taylor

First; Don't go for flashy cases. You say you don't want to spend a load of money! Get something basic with good ventilation and airflow.

I'd suggest an Antec 300.

If you send me your email address, I'll forward you a basket on Newegg.

Good Job Daniel, I think that should work well, 1 thing I would like to note is the 1TB/Platter drives that seagate introduced. I think he should go with the Phenom 980, Its faster than the FX, until maybe some later AM3+ chips come out.
