$900 Multi-Use PC

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Before July (Sooner the better)

BUDGET RANGE: $900 CAD (Or lower, i can only spend another $200 on the monitor, mouse, etc.) After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: School work, Games (New&Old), Multimedia, Surfing the web

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS



PARTS PREFERENCES: I would prefer Quad-core CPU (Preferably i5-750 or Phenom II X4s) a decent graphics card, 1TB hard drive

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe (Don't know how and don't know if it's good for the system or not)

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No (I'm not that dedicated of a gamer, yet)

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Don't really know, as high as the graphics card can support i guess

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: A case with a glowing fan would be cool (har, har?), as future-proof as possible and a case that can fit some future upgrades. Also, i don't know too much about these things so bare with me if my post might not make much sense. Please try to find the parts on Newegg.ca.

Thank you for your help and time!

    Bear in mind, that MOBO can't xfire and that PSU won't handle 2 5850's.

    However, for the budget, that's probably the best gaming rig you can get.

    Newegg.ca links don't seem to work well so just manually search for the parts.
