SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming: Mostly WoW and possibly any more MMO’s that may catch my eye. Plus the occasional CoH. Surfing

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, OS, Speakers, Case (Full Tower Xclio)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Preferably Newegg

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: I’m not a “fanboy”, I would just like good reliable components.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I’m still doing my own homework on this as well, hopefully after I get my list together I can bounce it off of your suggestions. Thanks ahead of time.
