Bit of a slightly different build I've put together. Open air design using the Core P3 from Thermaltake which is incredibly simple to build in and it's incredibly modular even in this base model. the drawback however is the cleaning. it does need a fair bit more attention than a fully closed in case but the 360 vent / draw allows the temperatures to remain much, much closer to that of the ambient air temp even with heavy overclocks on both the CPU and GPU. Virtually silent on idle and nothing that your gaming headset wont be able to easily block out while on full fan speed. full build was well less than 1000 usd (not including monitor) and has absolutely no issue with running any current AAA titles.
