My budget is under 1000$ overclocking is a maybe, depends on the situation if needed or not. I have the OS covered, and I added the PSU (I don't know why it didn't go in) and removed the DVD Drive because I found one in my garage I could use.

This will be used for gaming/watching movies and maybe later on making videos/messing around with FL Studio. So basically an all purpose computer, but mainly for gaming.

I also picked the mobo and case specifically for mobility/LAN parties.
