Dear Tom's Hardware Community,
I've been reading a lot and decided to ask the gurus for advice for a gaming PC build - I am completely new at building a PC. Looking forward to any advice! Thanks in advance.
Approximate Purchase Date: May 2011; I know its a little premature at this point, but I am often very indecisive so I need a lot of time to settle.
Budget Range: $1500 - $2000 After Rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Folding@home, Movies/Netflix, Web surfing.
Parts Not Required: Mouse, Speakers, Keyboards.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, Amazon. (any other sites you might recommend for better/comparative deals)
At the time of when you want to build your build. Check out my siggy for the 1200$ build. Since you have an extra 300$ left in the budget add another 6950 2GB or if you want swap the 6950 2GB for 560 Ti either are solid performers.
