Hi! I'm building a gaming computer for the first time and I found some parts that I was wondering about -- do they work well, are they compatible, and are these costs good?

RAM
Motherboard
CPU
Hard Drive
Power Supply
Disc Drive
Case
Graphics Card
Fan

I mainly play League of Legends, but also want to make sure the system can handle computer-killers like Crysis. I also want to make sure I can keep up Google Chrome, Skype, and whatever game I'm playing at the same time.

Looking at a 64-bit Windows 7 OS. If anyone could help me out, that would be great! Thanks :D

Nice build but I would swap the case for one with USB 3.0 ports http://www.superbiiz...=CA-300TWO&c=CJ

Thanks! I was also curious about a good keyboard(30$ max) and monitor(160$ max) -- what would be your recommendation (or one from anyone else reading this)?

Also, any other advantages to the case other than USB 3.0?

It is a couple of $ less expensive and I don`t like the vague advertising for the HAF;

supports two 120 mm

has it got any fans fitted!

Display (no speakers) http://www.adorama.c...urce=cj_3938566

Keyboard, not sure on as anything does me.

If you are looking to play on ultra or extreme setting? sorry, but your GPU will not cut it, and running other applications in the background will hit performance as well. You will of course be able to play the games but don't set your expectations to high, more research is needed. > http://www.maximumpc...run_crysis_3134

Windows OS, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16832116986 Look also on Amazon.

Keyboard. I advise you to go to a store like Best Buy and try out keyboards. You want something that suits you.

Monitor? Please supply us with a ball park $$$ figure.and do you have a preferred size?

Well, if your willing to sacrifice the ability to play Crysis at MAX settings, I've used the i5 Ivy Bridge (using integrated graphics) to play LoL at max, and Crysis at Medium. That should save you a decent amount of Cash.
