Needing help with new build.

Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next 1-2 weeks.

Budget Range: $1000-$1100

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Music.

Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard, mouse.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Would like just cause I have to pay tax on

Country of Origin: United States

Parts Preferences: Would like a i5 but kinda pricey for me. So might go with a AMD

Overclocking: No (none at all, ever).

SLI or Crossfire: Would like to before Christmas.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Building another pc soon. Want the thermaltake spedo case. Would like ATI over nvidia. So all inputs and builds welcome. Kinda stuck at this point and no Overclocking so the stock HSF is just fine.

  4. well I really liked the spedo but was thinking the NZXT Phantom, or Silverstone Raven RV02 case want a full tower. But I have a build on tigerdirect right now for AMD but would love to get a i5 if I can.
  5. ^ Then list that AMD build here, we will see if anything can be improved upon, also as for the i5, for gaming I doubt you would notice any significant difference in performance...
