Hello Community :3
I am very new to windows(WHOO HOO!), have always had mac (dont keeel me)..this will be my first outside of partitioning a mac drive. I am currently at a price of 1703, and would like to get that down a bit. Im not sure which pieces are most important..I am, however fairly certain that that is the graphics card I want. I am mostly on WoW/D3/SC2/LoL/GW2, so if there is no room to remove any price without hurting the performance..please do tell. I wish I could build my own to reduce the price X_X

Any help on an item I could get a worse version of would be great.

You can save money by dropping down to 11xx mb and i7 CPU if your not going to sli/crossfire. The 2xxx mb just have more pci lanes then the 11xx mb. Also the CPU most gamers using right now is the i5 3570. The i7 gives you hyper threading.

Yes, it would be great if I could go to the i5 3570; another downside to not being able to build myself..thats the lowest they offer for the build and if I chose another itd be +150 shipping and +100 from their discount Im getting. So I guess the answer is find someone who can build. :3

Thank you for your time!
