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.
