APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: less than a week. BUDGET RANGE: $700 but trying to trim it down a little more.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Light gaming, games that dont require too much power. (WoW, Diablo 3 in the future. NOTHING heavy at all.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, speakers.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg, zipzoomfly, anything for best price. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: U.S.A

PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case)

OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe in the future, not now

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I have a 32" inch LCD TV that I want to use as monitor, it has HDMI in, I would like to use the HDMI input, will this work? Will run it as best performance/look ratio probably 1680x1050?

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This is what I came up with:

you have found some pretty decent combos. From expierience dont expect your ocz rebate. I bought the same psu and they refuse to give me my rebate. For you r light gameing you picked a good gpu and nice ram gskill is good. Wow relies more on cpu so i suggest if you can getting a quad core so you can multitask whil playing. There are much better cases for cheaper and same with mobos.

case suggestion:



cpu/mobo combo
