SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, other daily use (all of which is less intense)
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I need all the stuff that goes in the case. I don't need mouse, keyboard, monitor, or OS.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Prefer newegg, but if there is a cheaper place I'm open to suggestions. (live in the US if that matters)
PARTS PREFERENCES: Planning to use an i5 750 processor. Also I'm fairly set on the case listed below, though I could be talked out of it if there is some compelling reason not to use.
OVERCLOCKING: I would like to OC, but mostly because I haven't done so before and it sounds interesting. SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Not at the moment, but I plan to add a second card in the future.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: My "monitor" will be a 32" HDTV with 1900x1080 resolution (I think that is right).
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I've done a fair bit of research and have most of the things I want picked out, I'm just posting this here to get any 11th hour suggestions before I pull the trigger. I would especially like to know if any of the things I'm ordering are incompatible or if there are things I'm leaving out altogether (ie should I be buying more aftermarket cooling parts?). Thanks!
I love the i5 750, I considered the i7 but after using the i5 I am completely satisfied. My system is no monster but when gaming I have no regrets. Even with my outdated 8800 I still play everything on med to high settings.
