APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Very soon; I'd say within the next couple days. No later than one week from now. BUDGET RANGE: Unlimited. I've been saving for a while, and I'd finally like to sort of reward myself.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Benchmarking, maybe some basic CAD, gaming, eventually Folding@Home.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I need everything. I'd like a nice monitor and speaker system.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com and amazon.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: United States

PARTS PREFERENCES: by brand or type I would probably like an Intel CPU and probably a NVIDIA GPU. You guys would all know better though.
OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I'd like a nice res monitor.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: No additional comments. This is my first build, but my neighbor who is experienced in building systems will be helping me.


Thank you so much in advance!

Okay, maybe a cap of $20,000. But their honestly is no realistic cap. I don't really want server parts.

That's all I've got. If you want liquid cooling, ask someone else, I'm not exactly an expert in that respect. Hope this helps.
