Would love suggestions for a new gaming/work rig for around $1000.
Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week (the closer the better)
Budget Range: (800-1100) Before Rebates; Before Shipping
System Usage from Most to Least Important: (Web Design/Development work (all of adobe suite+ other software, forex trading (important), gaming (I don't really play all the newer games out that are FPS, mostly RTS games like starcraft 2 or the older warcraft 3 custom mod games, MTGO, I would l like the rig to be able to handle the newer games, so that when I have the time I can get into them) movie/show watching, and internet surfing.
Are you buying a monitor: Yes, would like dual monitors, maybe even a third (would be willing to go over budget for a third depending on the build) would love the community input here.
Parts to Upgrade: All, I actually just built this rig I have now about a year ago, but going to sell it, including my dual monitors to my ex gf as she needs a computer, and now that I have a little more money (mine plus the money from selling mine to her) I'd like to do a better build for myself.
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: most likely newegg.
Location: City, State/Region, Country - Oceanside, CA
Parts Preferences: by brand or type: I've been mostly an AMD person, but I'd go intel now for more performance.
Overclocking: Maybe - I've never OC a computer before so this is kinda intimidating to me.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe - recommendations?
Your Monitor Resolution: I'd like 1920x1200
Additional Comments: If you would recommend a SSD go for it, I'll need new computer speakers as well if you wanna recommend those as well. Thanks!!!
