I need help with a PC build. Would anyone mind setting up a build for me that is right at $850 (nothing over $900 please)? Please have all pieces be compatible. I would specifically prefer this exact case:Nzxt - Phantom 410 Atx/micro Atx/mini-itx Mid-tower Case - Black.

The games I want to play on max settings smoothly are: Alliance of Valiant Arms, Counter Strike: Global Offensive and possibly Battlefield in the near future.

I would love for the build to be somewhat portable for me to transport back and forth from school to home.

I hope all the information provided suffices. Thank you in advance.

Your case is using nearly 10% or your budget. I would consider a cheaper case, near $50.

No, that can go under the part where I mentioned no more than $900. I think I would like to stick with Windows 7 64 bit
 
Here's a start, if I understand you correctly. Do you need a monitor? Do you need the keyboard?

That build seems nice, I really like how you were able to get the keyboard and mouse as a bundle. To answer you on the monitor, I really need a new monitor that is great for the price but I still do not want to go over $900.

Thank you so much!

But if u chose to change my case to something cheaper with the similar style to the nzxt case, do you think we could have the monitor or graphics buffed?
 
Need, no. The stock cooler is quite stout and reasonably quiet as well. I would not get one unless it became necessary. At school we use stock coolers on all non-overclocked systems, and have had no problems (so far, ask me in a couple of years :) )
