APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: (e.g.: Within the next month or so)) BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: $600-800 Canadian ) After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (e.g.: photo/video editing, gaming, surfing the web)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (e.g.: hard drive, keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, dvd drive)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: (e.g.: newegg.ca) COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: (e.g.: Canada)

PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type (Would like to avoid ASUS, preferably use parts that have a long(lifetime?) warrenty)

OVERCLOCKING: Yes -In the future, Crossfire: maybe when the 5770 drops to the sub $100 range--Not a big deal...

MONITOR RESOLUTION: (1600x1200, possibly 1080p in the future)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: (I would like a quiet PC, minimal power consumption, minimal bling, power efficient PSU)

You need a DVD drive? This is something I always forget to add to a build as well.
