First build w/ budget of 800-900

Approximate Purchase Date: Today or the next few days

Budget Range: 900 before rebates but cheaper would be much better

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, internet, productivity

Parts Not Required: Mouse and speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: Doesn't matter

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1600x900, 1680x1050, 1920x1080 depending on monitor

Additional Comments: It's basically going to be used for gaming only as I have a laptop for everything else. I haven't decided if I will Crossfire but it would most likely happen based on seeing how well the 6xxx series scales in Crossfire. Newegg's black Friday sales start later today so my build will most likely change if they offer better deals on other components but if nothing really affects me then this will be my final build. Also don't know if it would be worth it to pay a little bit more for Windows 7 Pro over Home.
