APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: in 2 or 3 weeks

BUDGET RANGE: 1000-1200$ (not counting the OS)

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, surfing the net(I usually keep 20-30 tabs open when I'm surfing), watching streaming videos and movies

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, speakers

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I would prefer canadian based websites like tigerdirect.ca, so I don't have to pay for customs charges

PARTS PREFERENCES: I have been out of touch and I don't really know which brand I want or need. I would want a 22'' or 24'' monitor depending on the price.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: I don't know much about it, but I don't think so

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I want to buy a new monitor so I would go for 1920x1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I've been hearing good things about windows 7, would it be good for me? I would like quite a bit of ram (6gb range).
I plan to keep this computer for quite a bit of time, so it would be best if it's easily upgradeable.

So you're looking at either a 955 or a 720 depending on how much you want to spend on a monitor - with a 955 and without a monitor this comes to about $950 before MIRs, so I would just go with a 720 at about $850 before MIRs.

And yes Windows 7 would be good for you. About the RAM you would either need 4gb or 8gb (and 4gb is plenty for what you're doing) because 6gb is for triple channel boards.
