http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wDkVZL This is the build I've got. I don't know what to get for a case or motherboard. I want to use this for some low level gaming. I've got my heart pretty set on the CPU and GPU. I've looked into getting a gaming case but they seem to put all of the money in the looks and not the case. I don't think the appearance will matter at all.

I think I want like 3 USB ports, but I don't know. I don't have anything USB 3 compatible, and I don't really plan to, so that's not something I really care about. I plan on using Logitech's Unifying stuff for the mouse that I already have and the keyboard in the list, another port for that wifi adapter, and another as an extra for a USB storage or uploading music to my phone or something.

This is my first build and as such I don't know what I'm looking for. All help is welcome and encouraged! :-)

Antec cases are real good for the price. 3yr warranty where most cases only carry a 1 or 2 year.

I'm guessing you're trying to keep it under $700? If $730 is ok, this should work for you... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BTB8yc
