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: $1130(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. Maybe a 770? If you can fit it...

Overclocking: Maybe looking for 4.2Ghz

SLI or Crossfire: In a year for sure.

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


Why Are You Upgrading: My Laptop sucks

Here you go (took out ssd, put better mobo in, new ram, exchanged 760 for 770, and took out Win 8 for 7 since windows 8 is for touch devices).

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.

Here's a link to my build so you can see what it all looks like - http://pcpartpicker.com/b/FVq
