APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Probably today

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Web browsing, Multimedia, and a little video encoding.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS): Power Supply(CMPSU-750TX), Monitor, hard drive(Samsung Spinpoint f3), Operating System.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com for the computer components. For the computer case I will be ordering through amazon(case around $100) because of the free shipping, when i tried to order the cases through newegg it adds an additional $80-90 to my shipping cost(I live in honolulu).

PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type (e.g.): Core i5, I'm also looking debating on the HD 5770 and the HD 5850.

OVERCLOCKING: I might do some overclocking in the future not too much maybe a 10-20%.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

-I would like a mid tower PC case that can fit all these components nicely, but it doesn't have to be flashy with lights or a side window... if it has Good airflow that would be great
-Also need a DVD/CD drive, Thermal paste, Keyboard, Mouse, and all the SATA cables or power cables that I need that won't come with the components.

As far as budget the lower the better I will spend a bit more if i have to.
