Gaming PC - Cheapest High Performance Build

Christopher R. Dallalio "Dallalio"
The list author says: "Why build a cheap Gaming Rig that will only allow you to play games on the lowest settings. This build will let you play everything maxed out and use Intels new Sandy Bridge combo and Radeons new 6800 series graphics card. it cost a little more than your $550-$650 build but not by alot"

"The HAF 922 is a solid choice for a case excellent air flow and pretty big for a mid size case. you could opt for the HAF 932 but play $60 more for a case that's only 2 inches longer an inch short and an inch narrower. Nah not for me the lossing 2 inches on the 922 will still hold the biggest of graphics cards out there"
