I'm planning to get a new computer within the next two weeks. APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within the next two weeks, the sooner the better. Purpose: Gaming, surfing the net and Designing. Budget: $1600-$1700, the cheaper the better. Parts not required: Keyboard, Mouse, Speaker, Monitor and Soundcard. i'm going for GTX 470 SLI Overclocking : NO Monitor Resolution: 1900*1200 i already own Samsung 25.5 LCD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... HDD: 1 TB, trying to get 2x500 GB .. and i want it to be SATA 3.0 RAM : i need 8 GB .. ?? The things which i need some help from u guys are .. the following. I want a good and reasonable in price Mobo which supports i7 and SLI I know nothing about i7 processors which will be great for the SLI SO .. i need an ASUS Mobo or Gigabyte which supports i7 and SLI also recommend for me the RAM and a good Case ! thats my real problem, but i'm not done yet. I live in Asia > The Middle East > The Gulf. I live in Sultanate of Oman, and i can't find a website which ships to my country, like newegg or cyberpowerpc. Also amazon is not shipping to my country. So if you guys have alternatives plz write them down. Because i might bring these parts from UAE, Duabi .. or i might try to get them through Ebay. Recommendations ???
