UPDATED Oldest son in the Air Force brought me some items to add to my ammo can so I added a few more pics.
This is the machine I finally built for myself and I love it. Use it mainly for gaming and regular surfing. Not completely done tweaking it yet, but its ready to go. And I was trying to be around that $1000 mark. I will, in time, try to overclock. And yes, I know, that I will have to change that stock cooler out. This is my first build, so its not perfect but I tried incorporating everything I have learned from this site. I debated about the stickers but zombies are huge in my household and couldnt help but throw them on for me and the kids' sake. I just thought they would look decent on the ammo can.
CPU--Couldnt ask for more when on a budget to grab this processor.
MB--Got a good affordable board that should fit perfectly for this build
RAM--Crucial Ballistix--was trying to go with some yellow/orange for the inside of this build and its a decent product.
Video Card--Really went back and forth with this selection, but in the end, closed my eyes and picked this one and it has done great for me since.
HDD--Will eventually pick up an ssd, but had this on hand and threw it in.
Case--I love this case. When I ran into this one, I knew it was the one for me.
PSU--Corsair, just another product I felt would be good for the build
Fans--decent fans that kept with my initial color scheme.
I am happy with myself and with how it all turned out and was even more stoked the first time I fired it up and it didn't smoke on me. :)
