Hello. I'm sure you guys get this question all the time, but I need some help building a new gaming system. I built my current system 6 years ago, and it has served me well. But, it's tax time, and this year I've decided to upgrade as I plan to do some significant online gaming this year. I plan on purchasing within the next 3-5 days. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I forgot to answer these questions, so here goes:

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 3-5 days

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, movies, ebay-selling.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: don't need a new monitor, but I'm open to suggestions

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: None

PARTS PREFERENCES: none

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1440 X 900 max resolution, 700:1 contrast ratio and 300 cd/m²

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'm interested in Windows 7 but it's not a must. I also need to continue using two monitors at once. Thanks

For 900 i would build something like this, also i would go with windows 7 64 bit. This will let you play game on a monitor up to 1920X1080 it will also run your 2 monitors but for that one must have a active display port.
