$1200 Upgradable Build

Approximate Purchase Date: 2 weeks

Budget Range: $1200 Before Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important:

Right off of the bat, multitasking. Here is a more detailed list of apps I use:

Web Development: 9
Web Surfing: 9
GIMP & Dreamweaver: 8
Gaming 7.5
Programming (Java, 3d): 6
Virtual Machines: 6
Office Applications: 5
Media: 4.5

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, Optical Drive, storage drive

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg preferably, Amazon if you have to.

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Sata III SSD for sure. I don't care if it is lga 1155 or 1366 or AM3, but probably stick with intel

Overclocking: Yes, moderate

SLI or Crossfire: In the future

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I would like my PC to be on the quiet side. I multi task a lot. I would like my system to be upgradable in the future. If you build an lga1155 system, I'd prefer a z68 chipset. I'm not a super overclocker, but I like to OC the cpu by some just to say I did! :)


Sorry, I missed a few things. I don't need an optical drive or storage drive since I have WHS, which will act as my storage drive, and I have the optical drives. Also I forgot to update the price from the example I copied, so I changed it to $1200 to match my title. Sorry!
