My apologies to all:
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Depends on price and what my wife lets me do.
BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: 600-800) Before rebates $800 (The lower the Better)
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Web surfing is moot so: Gaming and Video Streaming (to PS3) are equally important.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Case, Display
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Whatever is cheapest and reliable (So, probably NewEgg?)
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
PARTS PREFERENCES: I'd like to stay with intel, especially the i5's due to performance. Unless of course there isn't that big of a swing between Intel and AMD
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'm really going back and forth between this and the recent $750 gaming rig I read about from a month or two ago. I plan on playing SC2, D3 (when it comes out in a couple years) as well as stream movies to my PS3.
