APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: ~1week o 3weeks, just waitin for the finaid to come in

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming (wow, maybe a newer fps [any suggestions[)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I have a comp and 2moinotrs right now, and I'd like to keep it whole as much as possible, so I want everything

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg, usa obviosuly

PARTS PREFERENCES: i've always been partial to AMD (maybe because they've been affordable?)

OVERCLOCKING: yes and no, i would like the option, but not sure if its gotten that much easier in the past 9years (lol last time i built a comp a7n8x board)
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: if either are more price efficient for the computer to last longer, yes

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080, I think. It will mostly be for wow with a 17inch (lol) next to it, so it doesnt have to be top of the line, if it watches movies good, w/e,

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: theres a certain case that i had loked oat over the last few months, it has a mesh-y looking front, and has been suggested in many threads

other thoughts

I still have my mx510 and random logitech keyboard, so if it comes down to those two compononts, go cheaper and ill just 'give' them to the old comp

if there is a comparable (i mean like same but mayve cheaper) mouse id like that though

For Video Card, you'll probably want to add an HD 5850 for about $260 when they become available in a week or two.

For mouse/kb, a cheap wireless combo might allow you to "2-box" easier:
