    Here are my final specs, tell me what you think?

    Also would a i7 be worth the extra money for a future proof pc?

    Also would all the stuff fit in the mid-tower case i listed or will i need to get the full-tower version?

    Build looks fine. The Mid-ATX case is fine and what most people use, barely anyone needs the extra room, mostly drive bays, of a full ATX case. The i7 may be a bit faster for gaming but the i5=3570k does pretty much as well in most games from what I've seen. If you want to invest a bit more money then upping the video card to the 670 or 680 may give you more gains.

    Also, you could have just posted this to one of you original threads to keep proper thread flow.
