My buddy wanted a gaming rig to mainly play sc2 or dota2 but of course I wanted to build him a beast! He gave me a budget of ~$900 so this is what I came up with. So far he is quite satisfied.
The CPU, CPU Cooler, Mobo, SSD, HDD, GPU, PSU, Case, Optical drive are all from Micro Center. The ram and wireless adapter are from amazon. The monitor is from newegg!
