My current laptop is old and doesn't run any game that well anymore, so I want to build a desktop.
I currently have $900, but I would like the price to be no more than $850 since I have to pay tax and shipping. Peripherals are taken care of.
Approximate Purchase Date: this week or next week.
Budget Range: $800-$850 before tax, shipping, after rebates.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, animating/programming, youtube, surfing the internet, watching movies.
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: Completely new build.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, preferably Windows 7
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca, amazon.ca only please.
Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Parts Preferences: Intel CPU only, Nvidia GPU, 1TB HDD, I like this case
SLI or Crossfire: No
Your Monitor Resolution: I don't know exactly. It's a 19 inch monitor, so I think 1280x1024.
Additional Comments: I will go for an amd GPU if absolutely necessary. I'd like to run current and next gen games at medium-ultra settings at minimum 30fps.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current laptop is horrible and can't run many games.
