900-1000 Dollar Gaming Build

Approximate Purchase Date: 3 weeks, though if a good deal is going on I can buy somethings now.

Budget Range: 900-1000 before or after rebates is fine

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (If I could max out WoW, Metro 2033 and SC2 that'd be great), and picture editing photoshop/lightroom,in-game recording (fraps), movies

Parts Not Required: OS, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Speakers (But I would consider new speakers if they were worthwhile)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Neweggs? I'm impartial to website really.

Country of Origin: U.S

Parts Preferences: No preference. Whatever is the most cost effective.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1600x900

Additional Comments: My room runs kinda hot so cooling is a top priority of mine. If it looks nice that's a plus but completely extra and not required in any sense.

  1. If you are buying in 3 weeks, I suggest you wait. AMD will be coming out with Bulldozer supposedly in a few weeks, and even if you can't afford Bulldozer, it will make the price drop on other parts.
  2. Will do then. So just wait off on the processor or will it make more than just processors drop?
  3. It will most likely make the prices of the Sandy Bridge series (go to processors right now) drop. If you aren't going to buy for a while, we can still help you get a basic outline, just come back to double check it. There might be better deals in 3 weeks.
  4. Yea that's fine. Better deals are worth waiting for and a double check before purchase isn't a huge deal.
  5. Will the prices drop at release or a few weeks after?
