My old desktop died on me this morning, which I though was fitting since I was planning on replacing it anyway. I've never built a computer before and thought it would be a good experience.


Approximate Purchase Date: During this weekend, most likely Saturday.


Budget Range: $900-$1300


System Usage from Most to Least Important: School, Gaming, Programming, internet surfing, Light photo editing.


Parts Not Required: Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Tigerdirect, Newegg, Amazon.


Country of Origin: US


Parts Preferences: No preference. I'm looking for a computer that can stay on all day.


Overclocking: Maybe


SLI or Crossfire: No


Additional Comments
: Need a wireless adapter. I have a TV as a monitor (Samsung 23" LCD HDTV 1080p 2333HD), hope it doesn't pose a problem.

I can keep you posted on the build process if you want. I'm in need of a computer that can handle my school work (word, excel, some programming) and light gaming; this build can handle it. Would you have suggested something different?

Nope that build is fine. But I would of looked more into other options before dropping $800 on a computer.
