MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080, or 1920x1200 if there's a good monitor at this res. that fits into my budget
The primary purpose for the rig is for gaming and photo/video editing (photoshop, illustrator, lightroom 2, etc). I plan on OC'ing the 955 to around 3.8-4.0 if possible. I've done some research and the MoBo I've picked can do just that. My budget is around 1000-1200. Instead of going with a i7-920 build I decided to build 955 BE rig that OC ready. I tried to build a i7 rig but ended up around $1200 without a HSF, and a reliable MoBo.
