I'm going to finally build my own PC and dump the 6 year old Dell i have.
I want to use my 40+ inch 1080p screen as my monitor so 1920 x 1080.
I don't need keyboard and mouse.
SLI or Xfire- probably not
OC- i am open to the idea if i need to.
I will do some light gaming, maybe WOW or some older FPS like Half Life 2, i also want to play Diablo 3 when it comes out.
I mainly want to watch downloaded HD content smoothly, photo, music and surf the web.
I have pretty much decided on the HAF 922 case and a 600 watt OCZ mod stream PS.
And i'll need a OEM windows 7 64 bit OS.
Those 3 items are about $270.00
My budget is $800 to $1000.
Going AMD looks like it would keep me at about $800, but i came up with a i5 build for just under a grand.
