APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: in a couple weeks?

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, browsing, word processor

BUDGET RANGE: 700-800

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) newegg.com, zimzoomfly, frys, anything reliable

PARTS PREFERENCES: anythings good

OVERCLOCKING: planning to overclock the CPU
no crossfire/SLI

MONITOR RESOLUTION: planning on buying a 21-23 inch monitor over the summer when theres a good deal

Most likely the craziest game i will play is starcraft2, my macbookpro right now sounds like its going to explode when i play SC2, so hopefully a desktop will be better
I have a windows 7 OS so i don't need that.
Im planning to overclock the CPU but proly nothing else....don't know too much about SLI or Crossfire
Would it help to buy 2 older cards and crossfire ?

thank you for all your help :)

PSU is overkill but also a good price imo. Feel free to tweak stuff around as you see fit. I built it for someone else, for their needs in a similar budget to you.

I figured it would be a good jumping off point.
