I have a budget from 800- 1100 bucks. I want to be able to do some gaming, overclocking, and running solidworks(3-D cad program). I have a mouse, speakers, keyboard that I am going to recycle for now. I'd rather have an AMD chip. The only reason is I have never had problems in the past with them. I was thinking of a flat screen if it is worth it.

Keep in mind, some of those have the shipping added in, but the shipping is to my address, so it may cost less or more depending on your location. Use http://pricegrabber.com to find good prices. If you want to spend less and upgrade other things, you can make some of those OEMs.

That looks good, what's the price on it? Only thing is that Patriot is not the best brand to get for RAM.

A good case is the Thermaltake Tsunami Dream Case (Black). I think it's $105.00 though. Guess you didn't really take any of our suggestions eh?

It's not that I didn't take any of your suggestions. I was just looking around. DR. If you had 1000 bucks and wanted the best would you still go with what you said after I told you what I had. I should have told you guys more about what I was going to recycle. My bad. It's been a while since I built my last computer. I would like a pretty cool case. It's going in my living room. Thanks for the help!!
