I've been lurking here for a while, and I've finally saved up enough money to post. Here goes.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within 2 weeks
Budget Range: 700-800 USD Before Rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: basic multitasking (browsing, media, word processing, etc.), gaming, modeling (Autodesk Maya and Mudbox)
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: I'd probably prefer Intel to AMD, but anything solid will work.
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: I will be using a 1080p TV as a monitor, and I will also need an RBG cable(?) to connect it.
Additional Comments: I want something that will be upgradeable after the initial build, so take that into consideration. And as far as gaming goes, I don't care if I can play Crysis on max or whatever the benchmark is, but I do want games to run smoothly with normal settings, including Diablo III when it launches. Take your best guess for DIII requirements...

why not an hdmi cable to connect it? here, a mobo with crossfire cable for upgradable build. but psu wont suffice for xfire though. so i just picked it maybe you will change your mind
