BUDGET RANGE: $2600 (US Currency)

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Multitasking, Gaming, Internet, Emails, etc.

PARTS PREFERENCES: Mid or Full Tower that's not Antec and is reputable. Other than that, it's open.

OVERCLOCKING: Most likely not
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Either or not.

Save some money. See the SBM builds from this month on Tom's. You can get a killer i7 system for less than $1500.

Cpt Deadboots is 100% correct, anything over a $1500 budget changes every week.

Right now I7 with a x89 chip set and the Fata1ity case with 2 high end video cards and nvidas new 3d stuff is where you should be at right now with $2.6k

if its a good airflow case, HAF 932 should be good, very good reviews for it, im using it for my first build too.
