Approximate Purchase Date: I'm planning to purchase this week


Budget Range: $500-$700.


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Fallout New Vegas, Civ 5, SCII (not the heaviest of hitters, but I'm buying for the future)


Parts Not Required: Reusing all external accessories.


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com


Country of Origin: US


Parts Preferences: AMD/ATI for compatibility/pricing


Overclocking: May overclock in around 1-2 yrs.


SLI or Crossfire: May Crossfire in 2 yrs.


Monitor Resolution: Currently low-end, looking to upgrade in 1-2 yrs.


Additional Comments: I'd like a stable system that I can upgrade in about 2 yrs. and keep for ~ 4yrs total. I could use advice on what to do heatsink-wise. I don't plan on going crazy with overclocking.

Current total: $584.90

I'm debating about which power supply would be best, or if you would recommend a different one entirely.
