APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Next Month BUDGET RANGE: $1000 - $1100

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: All Gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Need all the parts, including a cheap keyboard/mouse/speakers and a decent monitor

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg

PARTS PREFERENCES: Core i5

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Depends on monitor we get

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This build is for my cousin, who plans to purchase the parts next month. I was thinking maybe an Antec 300 case and an asus mobo, Samung F3 500 gig HDD. Just wondering if we can pull off the i5 build on this budget.

FREE SHIPPING IS DEFINITELY A PLUS
E.G. I think its best to order a $10 item and have free shipping then buy a cheaper $6 item and pay for shipping.

Best solution

Thats $1161 plus shipping for a system that will expand to dual graphics cards someday. Im sure you can cut some more off with combo deals. Will drop to below $1000 if you take out the ability to crossfire (motherboard and power supply are cheaper).
