I would highly recommend that you get a Antec 1200 or similar full tower case for future upgrades and ample cooling.

Rest of the system is ample enough for gaming at any level.

Just what type of games do you play?

Would you look at this tower? Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case? Or should I stop trying to skimp on the case and blow 150 on that and maybe pull back specs on a few others?

Also gaming wise, I play WoW, CoD, Battlefield, these type of games. Also looking into the new Star Wars MMO and Diablo 3.

The Antec 300 is a small case, the Antec 900 is a Mid Tower, and the Antec 1200 is a full tower. I recommend full towers for all gaming needs because of the added room and more air flow.

For the same price you can get the SAPPHIRE 100312-1GDP Radeon HD 6950 which is a bit more powerful. You will also need to factor in the cost of Windows.

The processor is not compatible, you need a 1155 Sandy Bridge processor and also the power supply is rubbish, look for a Cosair, Enermax, Sliverstone, XFX and Seasonic.

Now those are much more better now :thumbup2: If you want bang for your buck for the hardware then go with AMD graphics and processor.
