Hello, I am planning on building my first computer during my fall semester. My main goal is to have a computer that I can use for both my school work and for games such as WoW, Starcraft II, and Diablo III when it comes out.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Sometime in September
BUDGET RANGE: I don't wan to spend much, but I will go up to $1200, and possibly $1500 but I doubt it.
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, school work, surfing the net
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA
PARTS PREFERENCES: None really, but I'd prefer an intel processor.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Have no clue what this means...
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Looking to make one at 2.8 ghz, have 8 gb ram, at least a 1 TB hard drive. I'd love for it to play Starcraft II on its Ultra settings.
Overall it'll be around $1300 so I'm happy with that. There's a slight problem I have. I changed my mind about overclocking and decided to get this heatsink, but from what I heard, this one's rather large and might not fit with the case I have. Is there a site that can tell me what cases would be good for a heatsink like this? If all else fals I'll just drop the heatsink and just run with 2.66 ghz
