My System Specs


I wouldn't get a 3550.. go for an i3 for now and then drop in a 3570k when funds and performance dictate it.. also means you can have a lil more budget for PSU and GPU
OR.. go straight for a 3570k as it's only $20 more..

i3 is still pretty good for gaming and should be able to find one for $100?

Also might be worth bumping the HDD to the Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6Gbps 3.5IN Internal Hard Drive - OEM - Seagate - ST1000DM003 as it's faster has twice the storage and only a little more expensive..

XFX 550W PRO550W Core Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 44A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Bronze - XFX - P1550SXXB9

Coolermaster Haf 912 Black Mid Tower ATX Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB Sound - COOLERMASTER - RC-912-KKN1 saves you a bit on the case

Look at bundles.. price match etc... should be able to squeeze out either a SSD or a ~ $300 GPU..
