Sorry about that format I thought this was a public list:

http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx...

Approximate Purchase Date: Soon, within 1 week.


Budget Range: $500-$1000(extra parts)


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming(minecraft to crysis style), 3d modeling(solidworks), movies, surfing internet


Parts Not Required: optical drives/1xGTS 250/HDDs/(22")Dual Monitors


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com/amazon.com


Country of Origin: USA


Parts Preferences: prefer gigabyte mobo, prefer intel processor(im thinking dual core i5 for fastest single core speed)


Overclocking: Maybe


SLI or Crossfire: Yes


Monitor Resolution: Dual 1680x1050


Additional Comments: Want to build something reliable and with a case that i can wire cleanly, smaller than a full size atx case i have now. My biggest concern is the processor/mobo that I'm looking at.

Ouch the Clarkdales 6xx chips were never, ever in the races as far as bang for buck gaming chips are concerned so a good starting point:

This has also been a 1st quoting a SBM build but the guys did a good job for low cost bang for buck gamer this time around!
