APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Early September

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, movies, surfing the internet, multimedia etc.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Do not need speakers, mouse, keyboard but suggestions for good and cheap ones will be taken (outside the 1500$ for the PC and monitor)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I'm from Canada so newegg.ca and ncix.com seem like the best choices.

PARTS PREFERENCES: Not sure if I need an i920 or not but I don't mind overclocking it because I heard it's simple and the Storm Scout looks like a cool case.

OVERCLOCKING: Yes don't mind overclocking if it is simple (haven't done it before) and I wouldn't mind sli or crossfire as long as my video card is futureproof.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I want the max resolution of 1920x1200 but does it really make a difference in games? Like I would want to be able to run games at high settings if I want to but let me know your thoughts on that resolution.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I already have windows that I can install on it and would love to be under 1500$ if possible. Thanks!

For 1920x1200 you want a GTX275 or HD 4890. Ironically this build comes up to 1337 on newegg without shipping or rebates
