APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Money on Hand
BUDGET RANGE: USD $1000 for the build less the card since I already have GTX 480

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming SC2, Mafia.. Doing some programming and photoshop

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY:
480 GTX

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: I'm eyeing an i7 950 for the processor. Case can be temporary cause I can buy a better one later.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: I would like to get for the best rated instead of the most expensive for most parts.

OVERCLOCKING: Possible SLI in the future.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I can always buy another monitor or borrow one.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am unsure if SLI is best since i'll already be using a 480. By the time, I choose to go dual, there setup might be obsolete.

^ Good try, but some links are broken,...fix those...
Also the HDD that you have selected is OK, but now there are newer better ones like Samsung F3s and the newer WD Blacks...
