Hey guys, I'm looking for a PC for casual gaming on League of Legends, and various MMOs (Bade and Soul, WoW, etc.) as well as the occasional AAA game title ...

Preferred specs: Intel CPU, 8GB Memory, SSD, good value video card. I ave windows 7 CD - would like a cheap optical drive, too.

I realize that there are a lot of really good deals going on from Amazon and other various sites.

Help a brother out! Thanks.

Everything need, great gpu for 1080p gaming and all and it is future proof with a powerful power supply which will support SLI in the future along with the SLI compatible motherboard

would it be at all possible to lower the price by lowering standards of parts so that a monitor and could be added? it's not dire - but i do like what i see in this build, too.

Lowering the price would significantly lower performance.

very good build, considering.. The SSD could always be added later, I would try to put the SSD amount into a better Mobo/GPU..

See exact same FPS for both HDD & SSD..
