Price Optimized Gaming Build ($1000 - $1500)

Approximate Purchase Date: Before September this year (closer is better)

Budget Range: $1000 - $1500 (including S&H, taxes and MIR)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, movies, light photoshop, internet surfing

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers and OS

Country of Origin: Canada

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
Used & to find the cheapest prices (hometown - no shipping) (may be able to find a store somewhere)

Parts Preferences: None really, I'm only trying to find the best parts for the price (that work well together)

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: In the future

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments: Quiet, cool (temperature & aesthetics), durable would be nice. I'm only not sure on the GFX, everything else seems okay. Getting two 460s in SLI would be about the same price as a 6950, or I could get another 6950 in the future.
