I'm building this computer for mainly gaming and homework stuff! I would just like some opinions to make it better but not to expensive! One of my biggest concerns is the Graphics Card, if anyone has any advice on a better one or maybe cheaper one that would be awesome!

Wow! You saved me lots of money! This is great! I can't thank you enough! Just one question. Does everything still fit in the r4 case with the micro motherboard also?
