APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Soon. Like, Friday or Saturday, or maybe later.

BUDGET RANGE: No idea. I don't want to spend much more than 1500 I suppose, but hey, cheaper the better.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Programming, Gaming, Numerical Computation, Surfing, Movies, Coat Rack

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: OS. Speakers.

PARTS PREFERENCES: Phenom II x4 955 BE and Antec 900 case.

Preferred websites: pccyber.com and newegg.ca. I'll probably be getting most parts at PC Cyber (since we have one down the road and then don't have to pay shipping).

Country of Origin: Canada (eh!)

OVERCLOCKING: Don't care.

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200 (24" monitor).

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Having an additional hard drive would be nice. Oooh, and a clicky keyboard.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, here are some parts that I've already picked out:

CPU: Phenom II X4 955 BE

Mobo: Still not too sure on this one...I had the GIGABYTE UD5P out, but it's a bit pricey

RAM: G.SKILL 4GB

Boot HDD: Samsung F3 Spinpoint 500GB

Storage HDD: WD Caviar Green 1TB

GPU: SAPPHIRE HD 5770

Optical Drive: I figured any Samsung/Sony $35 OD will do.

PSU: Corsair 750TX

Monitor/mouse/keyboard: No ideas at this point, although a 24" monitor would be nice.

So ya, that's basically it. I'd love to hear any responses from you guys and thanks a lot for the help.
