Approximate Purchase Date: (Any time within about a month from now)
Budget Range: (~1400$-1700$) Before Rebates, preferably no more than 1700$ with Shipping and Taxes
System Usage from Most to Least Important: (Gaming, Surfing the net, Watching Movies, Minor School work)
Parts Not Required: (Mouse, Software other than OS)
Preferred Websites for Parts: (Newegg.ca and NCIX.ca, open to others if somewhat reputable however)
Parts Preferences: (Intel CPU, Minor leaning to Nvidia but open to AMD as well)
Overclocking: Maybe, Never done this before but I am willing to try and experiment if it's really worth it for what I am doing and won't hurt the life of the parts too much
SLI or Crossfire: Also maybe, If it isn't too much of a hassle and the price to performance ratio is worth it
Monitor Resolution: 1920X1080
I'm building this system for gaming, while I mostly play LoL which this system would clearly be overkill for, I still would like to play games such as BF4, Arma 3, SC2, Skyrim (decently Modded with HD Textures) and Crysis 3 with High-Ultra settings, preferably not ever falling too far under 45 fps (willing to turn down some setting in games like Crysis to achieve this, I am realistic)
I will need a monitor,keyboard and OS licence included as well.
I am aware that next gen stuff from Intel and Nvidia should be coming out relatively soon but I don't want to wait much more than a month if the price and performance won't be worth the wait as I definitely want a new build before we get too far into the summer. However I do like the Future Proofing aspect of it as It will probably be another 3 years or so before I would upgrade again.
Thanks again to all of you who took the time to read this and any advice you guys can give me. I will be checking this regularly, so if you need any more info don't hesitate to ask.
