Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference on website, as long as it's safe.
Location: Massachusetts, USA. There is a microcenter close by as well.
Parts Preferences: Just because I have used them in the past I would prefer to stick with Intel / Nvidia... but willing to change for better performance/price.
Overclocking: Maybe, definitely a possibility.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, I'd like to keep my options open in case I want to in the future.
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: Would like a cool looking case.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My computer seems to be getting "sluggish" slow boot ups and random freezes. It's about 3 years old. While I can always do a reinstall of Windows 7 I'm not sure if it will totally fix the problem. I can't tell if it's a hardware issue or software. Would also like to be able runs games at max settings.
This is the list of parts I picked out if I decide on building a PC.
