Any parts preferences? Or websites you normally buy from (Newegg, Tiger Direct, Amazon, etc) ?

Definitely NewEgg.

I wouldn't mind Intel CPU but a AMD is fine as long as it fits my budget.

Nvidia GPU's, Motherboards don't matter with the preference as long as its a fit for gaming, cases doesn't matter aswell as long as it has enough venting for the chosen items.

Power Supply 500 Watt & Up.

I'm not sure how much multitasking you do or editing, rendering you do but this is a pretty decent build with an i3 (dual core).

Core i3-2100/H61/4GB/1TB SuperCombo- $343
Antec EarthWatts 500W PSU- $50 w/ promo code
MSI GTX 460 1GB- $180

Total: $573 before shipping and rebates.

If you need more cores, AMD is probably the way to go.

Do you live near a Micro Center? They have great prices on Intel CPUs and motherboards, much better than anything you can find online...

^^^^ could not agree more under the circumstances. Chances are you'll have to settle for 6870/6850 if you need Ram/HDD
