APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within 4-6 weeks.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Adobe Premiere, Video Capture (already have blackmagic design intesity pro), some occasional gaming (RTS/FPS).

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I'm keeping the Case (Antec 1200), power supply, HDDs, Optical Drives, monitor, keyboard/mouse.

Power supply is an enermax galaxy 1000W, monitor is a 24" 1920x1200 resolution.

I might keep my video cards, unless moving up for a decent price will give me better performance. Current Vid cards: 2x BFG 8800GTX OC edition

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: NCIX.com / Newegg / Canadacomputers / Infonec (i'm willing to shop around for the best deal if its a huge savings for the same part)

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada (Toronto)

PARTS PREFERENCES: i7 930 / or 920 - Nvidia graphics

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe, preference given to ease of overclocking or out of box stability.

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes - might just keep my current vid cards till something better comes out than the new Nvidia cards.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920 x 1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Budget - 6-800 w/o video card upgrades. 1000-1200 w/ video card(s).

slight problem, with 2 video cards installed in the x16 slots on that board, would mean that I won't be able to access the PCI slot needed for my HDMI capture card.
