Approximate Purchase Date: Beginning of February

Budget Range: $1,000 - $1,200 Before Rebate

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Recording, Rendering

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, 500 GB Hard Drive, 1 TB Caviar Black Hard Drive, Operating System

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg

Country of Origin: United States

Parts Preferences: Western Digital for Hard Drives, Nvidia for Graphics, and Sandy Bridge CPU

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I don't care about noise, I always let my fans run max. I would like an additional Caviar Black for RAID 0 if possible for better performance recording with FRAPS. The motherboard should have an accessible PCI Express 1x slot for a capture card, and a PCI slot for a sound card. I have been trying to get a GTX 460 SLI build down, but it is quite hard with my budget, so I may just go for a single 500 series card.
