APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 3-4 Weeks BUDGET RANGE: $800-1100
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, movies (I torrent EVERYTHING!), web browsing.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, monitor, speakers, mouse
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg and tiger direct
PARTS PREFERENCES: The Phenom II series seems to be a real bang for the buck in this price range
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Whatever's most efficient for the money spent fps wise
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200 (I use a Samsung T240)
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: A window would be nice (all my accessories are blue backlit) but not absolutely needed. If I feel the need for bling in the future, I can always upgrade -- but I do like showing off my system. I primarily play CS:S and WoW, and max graphics on both while retaining great framerate would be premier.
