Looking to build a new, high-end gaming PC desktop

Hello. As the title says, I'm looking to build a new PC as my graduation present. I'd like some help on making a good choice, as I want to build a very powerful and optimal computer. My computer building knowledge is rather low, and I have heard good things about this site's ability to help out in this area. Here are some little tidbits to help out:

Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: 1200-1600 After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Work, Internet, Movies.

Parts Not Required: Monitor, Mouse

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg

Country of Origin: US

Parts Preferences: Don't care, so long as it's a PC

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: <------- Don't know the differences

Monitor Resolution: This is the monitor I own: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VH236H-Inch-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B002453K5G. 1920x1080 output

Additional Comments: Quiet PC with good cooling system.

Thanks for all your help!

  1. Welcome,

    Please fill this in:

    I suspect your graduation is a while away? July? so probably best to wait for the new things and price drops.
  2. No, it's actually at the end of this month.

    If I can get more power for less in a month or so, though, I would do so.
