APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within this week

BUDGET RANGE: 800-900 maybe if necessary can go up to 1000

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies, school work, etc

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Speakers, mouse, OS.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com or tigerdirect.com since those are the only sites I know

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: I heard Intel is better then AMD so maybe the processor should be Intel.

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: (Not sure what this is)

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080 unless I can find a good 1920x1200 at a reasonable price.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want it to look nice but performance is more important to me so if it doesn't have a lot of bling for good performance thats good with me.

I have always used the stock hsf that comes with the processor and video card, however I do not overclock my components. Hopefully someone with experience in the overclocking area could give you a better idea.

I would suggest going with batuchka's build as you get awesome gaming performance without breaking your budget, it seems that combo deals are the way to go.
