Approximate Purchase Date: within 30 days

Budget Range: $1,000-1,500 After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, internet, multimedia, programming

Parts Not Required: monitor/keyboard/mouse (although you can recommend if you wish)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country of Origin: United States

Parts Preferences: ASUS, MSI, Corsair, Coolermaster, large tower

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, 1920x1200

Additional Comments: I also need (want) a BluRay Player or writer (depends on price difference), need recommendations for a wireless card, SSD is totally optional, also needs about 1TB HDD, an upper range videocard that will stay fairly cool playing current gen games on max settings will do (would like the option for SLI or crossfire in the future)

Do me a favor: Do a little research, come up with an idea of what parts you want, then let us help you refine that. There are PLENTY of resources for gaming PC's in your budget, mainly this thread right here: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/312822-31-bestconfigs...

Sorry to be tardy, but I think you can do a little work.
