ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Want to put together a good "all-rounder" that can handle with ease casual-to-moderate gaming-- mainly stuff like SCII, some MMOs, etc. That said, though I'm mainly a console gamer otherwise, I want the ability to handle more resource-heavy games should I choose to play them on PC. If there's room to money-save here, I'm down, though I'm averse to skimping just to skimp, iykwim.
