I am thinking along these lines.
I skimped down to a i5 and a gtx 560 ti.
basically what you get a is rock solid system and an easy case to work with.
I have the corsair case which is money for working in and adding parts with the best cable management around.
check my case pic.
Again. Dont spend money for today. Spend the extra $$$ so you still have a system 2-3 years from now. dropping $$$ on a machine every few years to keep up with the newest games is the biggest mistake alot of folks make.
