My new build needs to be reviewed!

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Pretty much like now.

BUDGET RANGE: $240-$260

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, surfing the web, music, movies.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, Speakers, keyboard, mouse, gpu, psu, hard drive, case, and cd/dvd drive.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD

OVERCLOCKING: Possibly

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION
: 1024x768

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: It's not a complete new build. All I need is a decent motherboard (CrossFire compatible), cpu (quad core for sure), and Ram all for closely around $250.


I have a basic idea, but let me know what you guys come up with. :)

Thanks
