Building my first rig, will be used for gaming only, world of warcraft d3 maybe some other games not sure, what it to last a good few years. I dont intend to SLI anytime soon, but would like to leave the option open, unless I could save a substantial ammount (about 50$ would be willing to drop the option), i would like to try to overclock although ive never done it before, for the 10$ extra cost on processor, id like to leave that option open as well.

Approximate Purchase Date: Tonight/this weekend

Budget Range: 800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming only, will not be used for anything else, not even surfing internet

Parts Not Required: Monitor keyboard mouse ect

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, unless i can save big elsewhere

Country of Origin: US

Parts Preferences:No Junk

Overclocking: Probably

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
