Brand new to the forum and hoping to get some help on a new gaming rig. I'm wanting to make use of the black friday deals while they're available! I haven't built a computer in 10 years so need tons of advice!
Approximate Purchase Date: Hopefully by today if not, tomorrow
Budget Range: $1000-1200 After Rebates and shipping. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mostly gaming and normal word processing
Parts Not Required: NA
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com and Amazon.com (I have prime, so some free shipping)
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: Pretty much looking into i5 or i7 with GeForce 460, maybe 450. I do like the Asus Sabertooth x58. Would also prefer 6 or 8 GB RAM but if not doesn't fit into budget, I can do with 4 for now and can upgrade later.
Overclocking: No? Maybe.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, 1920x1200
Additional Comments: A semi-quiet system would be nice, but not necessary.
Currently, this is what I have in my cart, but can be changed and adjusted at any time. Thanks!!!
