Windows 7: Computer Build

Computer Build

welp after a lot of testing, i just am not happy with the performance of my eGPU for my laptop. So i want to build a rig.

basically i want nothing fancy shamancy. just something that will play all my games on max settings and maybe a little HD video editing. with that in mind, i want this to be a budget build, so i do not want to spend more then $200ish. i also want it to be fairly small case, but not so small that i have to use water cooling. so to begin, i will list what i already have:

520W PSU
20'' 1600x900 monitor
mouse
optical drive
320gb 7200 RPM drive
PNY GTX 560Ti OC Edition

all i need is a keyboard, case, ram, mobo, and cpu with some fans etc.... So with the GPU and PSU and Monitor hat i have in mind, what Intel (or even AMD if i have too) CPU should i get, what MOBO, what RAM and what case would be good and not bottleneck the GPU? also tbh, i really do not need a 8 core or 6 core cpu. a regular fast dual core or quad core is more then enough.

the games that i play (1600x900)

battlefield 3
farcry 3
dirt 3
test drive unlimited 2
and a bunch of other, but those are the most intensive.
im not really planning on buying any other games any time soon, so i really only just want to play those on good settings.

i will also need a wifi card


any links and names would be awesome! thank you!

So why not keep upgrading the Dell instead of starting a new build ?

I can`t believe I just said that.


There are sooo many choices, I would get the best quad core you can afford.
