The first thing I want to know is with building my PC, is. I already have My Tower in mind. Now, would all of my components fit and, be compatible with it. So I am building around My Tower.

My Tower is a NZXT Crafted Series ATX Full Tower Steel Chassis. I have not selected, My Motherboard yet. I have My Video Card, Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2 GB DDR5 DL-DVI-I/SL-DVI-D/HDMI/Dual Mini DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 100312SR only. Because I want a great PC for gaming. Yet my budget is around $1300.

So is there any assistance I can gain by anyone that would be excellent! Thank you for taking the time to read and maybe help me out with this little info I have given you.

Well the tower is more of a personal prefrence imho, since it's a full tower any size motherboard will fit except itx. What cpu are you looking at? Since you are wanting a good stable system with upgrade options I would try for using quality parts like we have listed in our suggested builds. The link is in my sig, for a power supply go with a min of 650 watt corsair or seasonic. The psu is not an item to skimp on and if you get a quality unit it will protect your investment for years rather than over volting componest when its pushed like cheap and low qaulity units from mfgs like antech and lite-on.

Hey thank you for the response. I am really new to building my own PC. I like to have support on an important project such as this! I have looked around and I think that I will go with this processor. I will choose the Intel Core i7-870 2.93GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor. But rightnow I have to go. I will answer anymore necessary question. Cause I'm new to building. Thank you so much for taking the time to help me!

Greatfully,
Wiredwolf

If it was me

If I was building my first I would use one of the builds from the build post 2011. The only thing I would do different is use a Modular power supply and maybe go up 100 watts for up grades. Everyone has a case they like better. Me I like a case with fans and easy to change hard drives. I like Asus MB and AMD(I am retired and don't have a lot of money Known the bios in Asus and have always had good luck with them). But go with the brands they have listed. You have a good name Video card shoud be fine. Maybe more than you need. But my PC is always more than I need. But I like to OC just for fun.
Good Luck and God Bless Johnny

What you listed should work together but you could do considerably better for less money as shown in our suggested builds list that I linked to in Post #6.
Our $1200 ($1162.91) Intel build would be a better value and uses better quality hardware.
In the end, your money-your decision.
