APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: END OF MONTH

BUDGET RANGE: $1000 AFTER REBATES

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Watching Videos, Surfing the Web, Gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, Speakers, OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com & EBAY.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: none here really. Would like a nvidia card but looks like ati has better bang for buck right now

OVERCLOCKING: If its is easy YES I will overclock

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: NO

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would really like to use Ebay since an i7-860 can be bought for around $55 on there. I bought an i7-930 for my friend for $115 and it works great in his rig. I just have to make sure it is a reputable and trusted seller. So feel free to use ebay in your buiild as long as the seller has over 250 feedback. I really want to build this so yeah. THANK YOU! By the way here is how I built it so far. Any suggestions would be great!

CPU+MOBO+RAM+HDD+GPU-$~700

TOTAL-$~1035(I might sell the GT 240 to help coup back some cash or should I use it as a Physix Card? I'll be using atleast 2 monitors maybe 3 at 1680X1050.

bad bad bad!! eak!

AMD is the best bang for the buck at $1k budget.

The GT 240 is a terrible video card, the combo you selected is not good either.

The below PC is far better.

The PSU you selected absolutely sucks, thermaltake is a horrible PSU brand.
