Approximate Purchase Date: Asap

Budget Range: 1500-2000


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, specifically Shogun 2


Parts Not Required: I have a monitor, keyboard and a mouse.


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing)


Country of Origin: (e.g.: Grand Fenwick) U.S.A.


Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to use an AMD CPU & Biostar mobo with a 24" LCD and full tower case)


Overclocking: No


SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe I don't know what this is


Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)


Additional Comments: I am trying to build a gaming PC. I bought one about 6 years ago and it cost me a fortune. I am hoping if anyone has some builds that are working great with Shogun 2 Total War they'll let me know. Nothing rediculous. I already have a macbook that's great to watch movies with. This computer will pretty much just be for gaming.
