Sorry about that and ty. Seemed to be one of the more helpful tech places I have seen.

Approximate Purchase Date: approximatly a month, gotta save up a bit of money.

Budget Range: 500-1000 can be slightly more,

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming,video's, and surfing net.

Parts Not Required: need all, buying all new stuff

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg and frys

Country of Origin: United States

Parts Preferences: I don't really have a prefrence (unless its better to)

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Monitor Resolution: 1280 x 1024 to 1920 x 1200 and higher, anything within that range, Don't like anything under 1280 x 1024

Additional Comments: As I said basically need everything, something that can be upgraded in the future, but also that will play games now days towards a medium/high standard with atleast 20+ fps. I would like something that is quiet and keeps relatively cool also. The power usage isn't a issue, since electricity is cheap. For monitor I would prefer a wide screen LCD though I tend to like wide screens better. As for anything else it can be anything that people recommend, if you would prefer that I atleast put some type of list together I can try to. Though I said im completly lost when it comes to building 1 from scratch.

Hopefully this helps more for you guys. Found the edit button so just edited.

this is what i would reccommend:

Xigmatek Utgard Original CPC-T90DB-U01 case:

DVD-RW drive:

samsung spinpoint F3 1TB HDD:

Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-620 PSU:

8GB DDR3 1600Mhz ram:

a GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 mobo:

an i5-2500K:

an ATI/AMD 6770:

which comes to $725.92 after rebates.

possible changes:

if you prefer MSI (which i dont) this mobo is also a good choice (Athlough i would reccommend Z68 over a P67):

and as always +$99 for windows 7 64Bit:

im not too sure about what size (inches) monitopr you want but this is a great monitor:
