Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: about 20 000 CZK, that is about 1 000 USD, but would rather keep it under 900 USD because HW is a bit more expensive in Czech Republic

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, school stuff(office applications et c.), Internet browsing ... Gaming, everything else is secondary

Parts Not Required: Input/output devices (headphones, microphone, monitor, mouse keyboard et c.)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: gonna buy from a brick & mortar shop, just use newegg/ whatever you think will work for reference; maybe you can use a Czech e-shop like; note that the English translation sucks, but I think you can get your head around it) or google translator if you want)

Country of Origin: I am from Czech Rep.

Parts Preferences: need a Wireless LAN(Wi-Fi) card

Overclocking: Could be, but I want high reliability.

SLI or Crossfire: Can be, but I do not want to expand our electricity bill for no reason.

Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050

Additional Comments: Wi-Fi card(as I mentioned), screw-less case(screw-less opening, HDD in/uninstallment) reliability, low upkeep et c. Just a good gaming PC with a Wi-Fi card(preferably with decent Linux drivers).

Hmm for a 1650 x 1050 gamer i would think something like

Deneb 955BE
Asrock 870Extreme3
2 x 2 DDR3 1333 CL7
650-700w 80+ psu (for crossfire, less if going single)
HD 6850
CM HAF 912 case
500GB-1TB hdd

would be good to go?

Except it lacks the Wireless LAN card, CPU cooling et c.

Also, could you give me EXACT products list as there are more types of PSUs and more HD6850s(different manufacturers, cooling et c.).
You know, basically a list I can just give to my HW shop.

Would be highly appreciated.
