APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: around August or September
BUDGET RANGE: $500
SYSTEM USAGE: watching movies, streaming tv shows, internet browsing and general office work. I also do a lot of multi-tasking between these uses.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: ncix.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada
PARTS PREFERENCES: I think AMD/ATI is most recommended for budget builds so I'll go that route
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080. I may decide to add a 2nd monitor to have a dual monitor set-up but that's far off into the future
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like a quiet pc and would prefer it to be as small as possible (maybe microatx?). I'm not sure if I have a good enough budget for my needs. If anything, I can increase it up to $600 but only if there is enough of a performance boost.
