Approximate Purchase Date: November... I know its a long way away so i will probably make another thread a week before my purchase to see if anything has updated but for now i want to know like what it will look like.
There is something that i want to throw in here... I want it to have a blue/black or blue/white or even Red/black color scheme to it. If you could make that possible, i would be very grateful!

Budget Range: $1000(Please do not include rebates)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, youtube, school. (Glad i have my priorities straight ;D)

Buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: None

Location: US

Parts Preferences: Intel And Nvidia.

Overclocking: Yep.

SLI or Crossfire: In a year for sure.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920*1080 in a year will get another one.

Additional Comments: I have been looking at the Fractal Design Arc Midi R2, Or the Phantom 410. I just want something with good airflow and silent. What do you think?

Why Are You Upgrading: My Laptop sucks

Thanks a lot guys! And is it worth waiting for blackfriday deals? Thnx guys ;D
