I have spent weeks researching, and re-researching, a system that hits the price point/future resistant sweet spot and this is what i have come up with. I plan on using the rig for gaming, this will be my entrance in to PC gaming all together. My max budget was $1500 but I would also like to hit that ultimate gaming/ happy wife sweet spot as well :non:  so the less costly the better. I am very excited about this years lineup for pc games and would like to be able to run all of them as well as next years comfortably (I am open to SLI/Crossfire in the future).
