I was looking to build a mid range gaming PC and gave myself a budget of around $1000. Everything is ordered and just got my mobo, cpu and case today. I salvaged some parts from my old desktop (HDD, Optical drives). Hopefully will get the rest this week sometime.

Ya I'm going to add a SSD as well. I only got the 16gb because they had it on clearance at NCIX when I went to pick up my order. Phone Post
