APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: july 27th :) 
BUDGET RANGE: 650-750 (with or without monitor)
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Starcraft II, Microsoft Office, watching movies
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: none
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: none, I am new to this (aside from one order of RAM on newegg.ca)
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada (Quebec)
PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel CPU - Nvidia graphics - mid tower (I know nothing about mid towers but they look pratical - but can go full tower if mid compromises noise/cooling) - laser cord mouse
OVERCLOCKING: No
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: no preference, something reasonable for starcraft and office
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I put starcraft as a priority performance-wise but office is a priority looks-wise (aka simple keyboard/mouse/monitor/case).

Is it possible ?
