Approximate Purchase Date: Around Black Friday/Cyber Monday ... if i find a nice deal i will buy sooner


Budget Range: Budget adjusted, bought a couple LCDs, new Budget $ 750-800


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Poker, some gaming, surfing, light video editing


Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, Speakers, HDD (WD blck 750Gb), DVD burner, Monitor (bought 2 22" monitors here), PSU (OCZ MosXstream 700)


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tigerdirect, geeks.com, superbiiz, amazon


Country of Origin: buying in USA (shipping the parts to Colombia)


Parts Preferences: none


Overclocking: Maybe light overclocking


SLI or Crossfire: not really


Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 X2


Additional Comments:
Rebates are not available for me, i want quality parts as warranty is a big issue since im shipping parts outside the US territory.
Double monitor would be really nice, but im not sure if i can fit it into my budget.
If i get good pricing on monitor within my country ill buy it/them here, just for the guaranty add.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ill be updating here once i have an idea of what to buy :D 

Case:
CM HAF 912 $ 60 (is it really better than Antec 300 illusion or NZXT M 59?)

^ You have a good build there...
But if you will not be Crossfiring, then I dont see the use of that board, but even if you switch to some other non-crossfire board, you would save ~$25, So instead get this PSU -
Antec EA 650
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
So this opens up the Crossfire option without having to upgrade the PSU...

batuchka's build is pretty righteous, and i'd use the extra money for either a larger monitor, or a second monitor. being able to 8- or 12-table without any overlap is key.

I have problems here with biostar board, they are not really quality, and for me guaranty its a big issue being outside the USA.

What about heat heat on micro cases?

I like the idea of micro atx, so shipping its cheaper, then i can expend a little more in quality parts, and 2 monitors its really nice for poker playing!

I have no problem with Biostars (i have a machine @ home with the same exact mobo and had built with their AM2+ line since 2008 for clients) and CM 341 is one of the few mATX that has huge clearance for long GPUs whilst having up to 4 x 120mm fans capability ^^

As it is a good idea, i think im going mid tower, maybe going after the HAF 912.

Think the Antec EA 650W its really a good idea, still waiting till black friday/cyber monday to see what is available!

New Budget $750-800, no need for monitor.
