Approximate Purchase Date: Within this week (11/1/10-11/8/10)


Budget Range: $600 maximum Before Rebates


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Autodesk Inventor 2010, MMORPG Gaming (Perfect World International to be specific), Microsoft Office, Internet Browsing, Streaming Video, Playing Music


Parts Not Required: Computer Case, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, other websites are fine but these are just what I'm familiar with. :p 


Country of Origin: United States of America


Parts Preferences: I have been partial to Intel and Nvidia, but realise my budget is low so I'll take what I can get. ;) 


Overclocking: No


SLI or Crossfire: No


Monitor Resolution: at least 1280x1024


Additional Comments: My old Dell laptop I've had for years finaly quit on me unexpectantly this morning. Got some major Inventor assignments due for college soon and need a decent computer up and running. I had plans on saving up and building a pure gaming PC, which is why I have the case already, so I would like it to be good enough to handle what I've currently listed and be upgradable over time. My current budget is maxed at $600 and I'm having a hard time figuring out a good build for that price. I can get Windows 7 Professsional for free through a program at college. I will need a wirless card; I'm not allowed to run ethernet cables through my current residence. Any and all help/advice/builds will be greatly appreciated. :D  Let me know if I missed any important information that will be needed, I think I covered as much as I can though. Thanks in advance!
