Approximate Purchase Date: a week or two Budget Range: $800ish Before / After Rebates Before rebates System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, various multimedia (streaming movies/music/etc.) Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard/mouse, hard drives, ODD, maybe case (could go for a good case combo, though) Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg Country of Origin: USA Parts Preferences: Slight preference for AMD/nVidia, but whatever works. I went with Intel/nVidia in my initial build. Overclocking: Maybe, but no HSF with the initial build. SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, would like to keep the option open, even if it doesn't ever happen. Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 Additional Comments: Aiming for gaming performance while reusing some old parts. PSU might be overkill.
