August 9, 2011 12:26:31 AM

Approximate Purchase Date: Aiming for the end of November


Budget Range: $1000 Before Rebates, I can go to a max of $1200


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Netflix, Internet usage


Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Speakers, OS, Printer


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: http://www.newegg.com


Country of Origin: U.S.


Parts Preferences: I don't want AMD graphics card, I want an Intel GT580, or w/e that is.


Overclocking: Yes


SLI or Crossfire: I don't know what SLI is, nor do I know how to do it, so Maybe.


Monitor Resolution: 1440x900


Additional Comments: I'd also like for the case to have a window. And if the computer needs to be Crossfired, or overclocked, can you give me a link on how to do that?

Also, I plan on playing MW3, BF3, WoW, GW2, and SWTOR. I'd like for those to all run on High-Ultra.

Will that computer run current and upcoming games on high-ultra?

Also, I'm still open for other builds!

well, you'll play all the current games and future games on 1080p without any problem just ensure to have a good graphics card such as HD 6970 or GTX 570 or higher if you can go further

This build just needs a case added to it. For good cooling with plenty of room, look at the Cooler Master mid towers like the CM Scout, Enforcer, 922 HAF, 912 HAF, etc..

Now, I'm super new at computers. I know a little bit, but not enough to tell what all this is.

My real questions for this build are : 1) Is this all I need to have a complete computer? Minus the OS, monitor, case, etc.

2) This can run lots of games on high-ultra, right?

Yes to all, and not only that but this build allows you to add another vid card later on for dual vid cards in SLI.

I've been looking at cases, and I think I found one. Can you tell me if it would work good with this build?

Keep in mind, I know NOTHING about building a computer. I won't even know how to install the Mobo.

Any of these three down below will give you ample room and space. That CM 922 is the largest of the three and offers the best cooling.

Yes one of these would be suitable for you specially the HAF 922, or you can get HAF 912 or CM Storm Scout for less money and pretty cooling.
This link will show you how to install the MOBO in the case,

Everything is pretty simple, don't worry about anything.

Sweet, now I just have to wait for november to come so I can buy this beast ;].

Thanks guys!

EDIT : Is the GTX 570 worth the extra money? Or would it be better, and longer lasting, for me to just buy 2 GTX 560's and just do SLI?
