I have changed out hardware in pc's before, just never built one. I have help if I need it though :) 

I want to build a gaming pc for around 1200-1500$ . I would like atleast 8gb of memory, intel i-7 ?? huge hard drive, nicer graphics card. I plan on buying an azza hurrican 2000 case. I just need to make sure stuff fits and works together. Whats the best motherboard for me as well? I need a list of every single thing i need :)  I want to be able to pretty much run anything on the highest possible levels new game wise. I also race Nascar 2003 season online and with all the mods that keep coming out, my current pc is only getting 15-20 fps :(  terrible ! HELP ME !!

Approximate Purchase Date: over next 2-3 weeks


Budget Range: (e.g.: 1000-1500) will be able to upgrade more over time

System Usage from Most to Least Important: GAMING ! Photoshop, everything needs to be fast !

Parts Not Required: keyboard,mouse,speakers, monitor

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: best deals on certain parts, will buy from anywhere


Country of Origin: USA


Parts Preferences: by brand or type : Intel Processor , I-5 or I-7 ??

Overclocking: Not if I get a great pc before having to overclock


SLI or Crossfire: ????????


Monitor Resolution: I will be playing games on a 47 inch lcd

Additional Comments: Azza Hurrican Case, Lights, Lighted Fans, something to make her quiet

Here are some options for you. All found on the Newegg.




To save a few hundred you could always delete the SSD, just figured you might want it as a boot drive. Hope this helps.
