[New Build] Please Rate this Build Moderate user/Gamer

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


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.
