I'm building a gaming system for my son who is deployed in Afghanistan and wants a gaming desktop when he gets home in Nov. I'd like to get the best performance for gaming while staying within the budget. I've read some of the recent posts and have come up with the following components. Feel free to offer advice.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Late August/Early September BUDGET RANGE: US$800-900
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, watching movies, surfing the internet
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
PARTS PREFERENCES: Not loyal to Intel or AMD
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: He wants a nice case with blue led but might like another color choice, I haven't built a system a about 10 years so I'm enlisting your expertise here. Thanks to all in advance.
Any chance you can find the max resolution of the monitor he will be using? Also i cant view your saved wishlist, you need to make it public and post the link to it. Often times its just easier to post links to all the parts.
