Default Re: **NEW PC & CASE**

Any particular reason you didn't choose to go with the Gen2 I7-2600k and Socket 1155?

It's slightly more expensive than the I7-870, but it has better performance at the stock clocks. The 2600k is also easy to overclock above 4GHz. (Get a third-party heatsink and fan.)

I don't know how well the onboard graphics of a Z68 board would compare with a GT220, but they might be all you'd need.

As for cases, have you considered the Antec 300? (I don't own one.)
