Buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Parts Preferences: Intel And Nvidia. Maybe a 770? If you can fit it...

Overclocking: Maybe looking for 4.2Ghz

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

    So looking at your specs, you have a MSI G45 mobo, How is it suiting you? Why do you say its better? Also how are you liking the case, i can get one for 50$ so i think its a pretty good deal. And thanks for everything ;)

    Both mobo's are good, I just prefer msi (and its around $20 cheaper). Plus it's optimized well with their cards. As for the case, i'm lovin' it! has tons of room to work with/solid quality, no complaints.
