Approximate Purchase Date: Anytime between now and the start of the fall semester, I have the money now
Budget Range: Under $1200 before rebates including a new monitor
System Usage from Most to Least Important: surfing the net, Microsoft Office, gaming
Parts Not Required: OS
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tiger direct, microcenter is nearby
Country of Origin: United States
Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel processors and AMD/ATI for the graphics card
Overclocking: Maybe but more than likely not
SLI or Crossfire: Again, I would like the option, but most likely won't ever do it
Monitor Resolution: I'm thinking 1920 x 1080 but I need a new monitor
Additional Comments: I don't get a chance to game very often but I would like to be able to play Skyrim when it comes out instead of getting it on the 360 or PS3. I have been upgrading the same computer since 2002 (no longer has any original parts) so I would like to be able to do the same with this.
Copied my build over as the thread link wasnt working. I know the links above wont work but you should have sufficient information to look at all items on Newegg without confusion. If you need working links let me know.
