Need new system - end of week

I built several pc's about 7 to 9 years ago and now I am so outdated that I don't know what to look for. So I really need help to build a solid system for the next few years.


BUDGET RANGE: $600 - $700 preferrably after promo over rebate

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: It will mostly be used for software development, gaming, media, surfing the net, movies. Will also need to support Starcraft 2.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS ( not exactly unless a combo that comes with Window 7 Professional) might just use XP Pro 64bit.


COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA - California - Bay Area

PARTS PREFERENCES: I don't have any preferrence for AMD or Intel, as long as it is a solid system.


SLI OR CROSSFIRE: don't know anything about it.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Will be purchasing a 24" monitor at a later time, will use the current 19" for now.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The system needs to be quiet.

    Is it possible to provide me the links to those items and are those components are compatible with each other? I like to make the purchase today. The 1TB is fine.

    Thanks in advance.
  3. Are these deals only good for one day or a period of time? I found the memory & case combo but not the CPU/mobo and video card/PSU combo. Am I not looking at the right place or don't know how to search for the combo? Help! I need to get the pc soon.

  4. CPU/Mobo
    Combos usually reset beginning of the month @@ You are welcomed ^^

    Thanks for getting back to me Batuchka.

    So most of these components come with the cable and this setup has room for upgrades in the future, correct? Let me know so I can order it tonight.

    Thanks, I appreciate you betting back to me.

    Yes that PSU comes with the cable to connect to power socket @ wall and for just 1 HDD the amount of SATA cables bundled in with mobo would be more than enuff hehe You are welcomed ^^
