Help me pull the trigger!


Dec 17, 2012
I am wanting to pull the trigger tomorrow and order all the parts for my gaming pc.

Purpose - Gaming on high settings ~ League of Legends, battlefield 3, civ 5, and more.

Things not needed - Storage, monitors, keyboard, mouse.

Probably not going to overclock it right away but may in the future. Then again may not.

If I can get this build down to the $700 dollar mark I will pull the trigger. Where can I save some money and not give up what I want, to be able to game on relatively high settings.
