Approximate Purchase Date: Feburary 2014

Budget Range: 1000, preferably 800 or less, the cheaper the better

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Are you buying a monitor: Yes, the Acer H226HQLbid, $120

Parts to Upgrade: Graphics Card, processor cooling

Do you need to buy OS: Yes - Win 8.1

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:,,

Location: Ottawa, KS, but i can go to stores in Kansas City, KS or MO

Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to upgrade to Intel CPU)

Overclocking: maybe, if possible
SLI or Crossfire: yes, in future

Your Monitor Resolution: 1080p

Additional Comments: At the moment all i want is a computer that'll run most games (Crysis 3) at 30+ fps on medium settings at 1080p. low processing power, preferably AMD FX-6300 or greater, and please keep in mind that windows 8.1 and the monitor need to be included in the price. Also pcpartpicker partslist would be great!

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My asus k50ij is starting to die and i'm starting to get into the gaming pc world.
