Take a look at this. I managed to squeeze in a decent i5 and a decent looking motherboard with RAM that matched :)

Thanks for all your responses, but can the build I made already run 50-60 fps in Crysis 3 Ultra in your opinion?

@MasterDell thanks for the build you posted as it includes a monitor, I already have Windows 8 Pro on a USB with a legit key but can your build run High Requirement games on ultra better than the one on first post?

Good FPS at ultra is my main goal

Thanks man. Been lil paranoid/nervous since this is my first build and never feel 100% sure but I made 1-2 changes to the build you suggested (one being the case~) and ordered it. Thanks all.

Ill post an update when all the parts arrive!
 
Cool :) I always put cases in that don't have issues with length.. That's just as a guideline. I never actually expect people to choose the cases I suggest because it's ALWAYS personal preference.
