April 2012 $1700 Gamer

If you've got the cash, this PC will be lots of fun.  Since the budget had room, I'd suggest adding either a Notcua D14 or C14 cooler so you can overclock the snot out of the CPU.  Personally, I have the C14 and love it, no heat issues at all.  As for the rest, change the case if you like something else, just make sure if you do decide to change the cooler, double check Noctua's website to make sure that the RAM and motherboard listed here will work with the cooler you choose.  Load up some BC3 and have fun.
