Hello,
I want to build a $1700 gaming and editing PC. Here are some details:

Approximate Purchase Date: In a few weeks.

Budget Range: $1600 - $1700 MAX.

System Usage (Most to Least): Gaming, Editing, Recording, Web surfing, Microsoft Office, Everyday Use.

Monitor: Yes, I would like to have this one: Asus VG248QE 24.0".

OS: Yes, Windows 7 please.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any place that has the best deal. Except Micro Center because I don't have one near me. Only if they ship.

Location: NJ, USA.

Overclocking: Yes.

SLI or Crossfire: If the budget allows, then yes. But if not, hopefully in the future.

Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080, Obviously since that is what the monitor I listed is, haha.

Storage: I want a Samsung SSD combined with a 1 x 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black HDD, and a Seagate Barracuda 1 x 2TB HDD.

GPU: I would like the new NVIDIA 700 Series.

Memory: 16GB of 1600MHz because I will be multi-tasking a lot.

Motherboard: ATX

Case: Windowed


I know this is very picky, but I've done a lot of research on this stuff but I can't find the right combo for my budget. Thats why I'm asking you guys. If you have any questions, let me know. I will reply ASAP.

Thanks! :D
