The cost you had that at is pretty close, maybe 1,100-1,200 to start. That case would have room for upgrades in the future right? I defiantly want it to be future proof as much as possible. I don't know if I should start this before Christmas though...lol. I'm one of those guys, when I start sinking money into something I can get out of control pretty quick. I think I'm going to start with that exact setup you recommended, just upgrade from there if I need to.
