So my MacBook bricked itself and I realize it's time to join team PC. I'm looking to build primarily a gaming PC (I play guild wars, Diablo 3, etc) and I'm tired of playing games on the lowest possible settings.

I have a monitor, mouse, keyboard and copy of Windows 7 already so I just need to parts to build the PC itself.

As stated my budget is somewhere between $600 - $700.

And extra points if it fits into a small or cube-ish shaped case as I really like the look but not 100% necessary. (Cooler Master HAF XB Evo worth considering?)

Thank you all for your time

This should suit your needs and should be fairly future-proof as well. You may need to upgrade storage later on but other than that this should be fine for you. Enjoy :)
