Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: I am looking to purchase all of the parts between Black Friday and Cyber Monday with hopefully some solid deals pushing up the value of what i can get for a budget price

Budget Range: (e.g.: 300-400) I'm looking to not spend anymore than $1000 after all of the rebates/shipping etc... Now if I am right on the precipice between something average and something amazing based on a few dollars I can go over this.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the net. 80% gaming,compiling programs

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: already have a monitor, keyboard, & mouse. Otherwise I need a Case, mobo, CPU, RAM, SSD, GPU,Fans & PSU.

Do you need to buy OS: no.

Preferred Website(s): Im looking for the best prices for value(bang for buck) so website is not an issue though it would be nice to have everything come from one store with a good return policy I am poor and discount parts is what im really after.

Location: City, State/Region, Country - Santa Cruz, CA, United States

Parts Preferences: Intel tend to be a lot more expensive than AMD's im assuming and im in this for the best performance for money but then again also reliability so I am really not sure what type of processor is better for me. maybe the one with the biggest holoday sale

Overclocking: Not sure how but im up for it if it will make the Build faster and cost less

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe I have never done SLI or CrossFire but my goal is to get the best performance possible for the price so if that ends up being a good option I'm game.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 I Think though im planing on upgrading when money becomes available

Additional Comments: I care about the power under the hood so the look of the PC is meaningless to me. I know I don't want to do liquid cooling as that sounds like a nightmare for a relatively new builder like myself. I play games of varying strain from low end like Wow to a little higher like Witcher 3 etc.. so i'm all over the place with what games i'm using. Ultra graphics is not my goal but is nice if I can achieve it, quality FPS is more important to me by far.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I have never owned a tower only laptops and I need some power and performance to accommodate demanding games like star citizens(Not out yet) and other GPU/CPU intensive games also for compiling programs,screen recording games for youtube, editing videos and photos and compressing files.

Thanks for reading and for any help that you can provide.

This is exactly what I need as well. I'm in the same boat as Buildhelp and would love to see build setups using black friday/cyber monday deals. Thanks in advance!
