System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming. Need something better than an i7 running games with a Intel HD 4000.

Are you buying a monitor: No, but a keyboard is probably necessary.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes, Windows 7 preferably.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com would be preferable, but not necessary.

Overclocking: Not really interested.

SLI or Crossfire: Whatever.

Your Monitor Resolution: Not sure. Most likely, 1920x1080.
