that's around 800$ and you still have money for a more powerful graphic's card like a 660ti instead of a 660,actually.
Just saw your last post and yeah,for the case,it depends on what you want,i build a pc with the the 912 from cooler master and the cooling is pretty epic ,and it's relatively quiet,just think for it,you have a 200mm fan on the front :D
for the size,careful, you have standards.For an ATX motherboard,you need an ATX compatible case.matter of size,and you need good cooling for gaming parts,don't think that your components will fry at once with a very cheap case but a case with a 120mm fan on the front and on the back would be good.more fans or larger fans would be even better,but not needed
This is good advice. With the extra couple of hundred dollars,like he said,upgrade your Video card,or your CPU. You can get the 3770K,and still stay within your budget.
