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.
