After doing quite a bit of research, I found this site which help a good portion especially with compatablity. I also read an article from About.com (http://compreviews.about.com/od/PC-Gaming/a/Gaming-PC-Buyers-Guide.htm).
I want to give credit where credit is due, but CareyHolzman, on youtube, had some great videos that I watched repeatidly. How to Build a Gaming Computer - NEW 2013 Edition! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zOYdNEHDQo and How to Build a Gaming PC 2012 - Part 3a - Installing, Configuring & Optimizing Windows 7 w/SSD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oyz5g6Sipaw.
I found a great bundle price for the AMD CPU and MoBo at Micro Center. I then received $15 mail in rebate for the Video Card. I also got $10 mail in rebate for the case and the power supply. That subtracted an addition $45 off the final price. Last, I had to wait for after Christmas Sale for the Optical Drive and Windows 7 at Newegg.com.
Assembly was much easier than I ever anticipated especially while watching the videos. I obviously did not copy the builds in his videos, but they were really relevant. The rest I was able to figure out on my own with the manuals. One regret is not going with the Corsair 200R which comes with housing for SDD. I will just mount my SDD on top of the 3.5” rack.
My future plans are to purchase two SDD, Corsair H100i Liquid CPU cooler, Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB (3 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 (do the have to be same manufacturer?), a LED back lit 23” monitor, and eventually a second Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 2GB Crossfire.
The tower is up and running strong today after its first full day of program downloading and optimization.
I will have to update later Benchmark Results
