Hi everyone, recently found this site and figured it would be a good place to get some opinions on my upcoming gaming pc. This is my first build in probably 5 years so I've allocated a nice sized budget and want a power house for gaming. Feel free to drop suggestions and look out for any problems there might be (i've been out of the loop for awhile).
Some direct questions:
Any brand i should avoid for the video card (4870)? At this point, i may have to go with whatever i can get my hands on.
Looking for case suggestions, i mainly want something that isnt flimsy (as much metal as possible), not too flashy, and cools well.
Just listing newegg for convenience. $US
