I have been looking through some of the recommendations $1000 gamining rig and other forum posts to try to put together a new build. I would mainly use this pc for gaming (SC2, WoW Cat) but potential video edit (HD video) but current system was brutal for that.
Approximate Purchase Date: This week
Budget Range: About $1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, productivity (excel, etc) video edit
Parts Not Required: I don't need keyboard, mouse and have two ViewSonic VX2235wm (one is VX2235wm-7) that are fine although I can never get color to be an exact match.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: NewEgg is my preference... would like to get everything at one spot even if I spend a little extra for a component.
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: I have always been a Intel/NVidia fan...
SLI or Crossfire: SLI unless there is a reason.
Monitor Resolution: 1680x 1050 is current but wouldn't mind going up a bit
Additional Comments: If a part is more money but makes a difference... I am fine with that.. the $1000 is a guide... not a hard stop.
Here is what I have put together based on the info seen/read... I am unsure on the video card and have two listed. Open to any feedback and suggestions...
