I built this one for a friend, I tried to get the best I could without breaking the bank.
This one will be used for gaming so I made sure he at least had a good monitor to enjoy it.
I went with the 3570k not becuase it's unlocked but it's actually cheaper at the moment than the 3570.
Any suggestions are welcome. I plan on building something similar for myself when I get enough money so I would like to see what I can improve.
