I would like the computer to be able to play on ultra on StarCraft 2 with no lag.. even on the custom game special forces where there is a lot of triggers. I also want it to be a really fast computer that can do a lot of multi tasking too if that is possible with this budget. Thanks
You can get a corei5 2500k and gtx 560ti as a combo, a 1TB 7400rpm hard drive with liteon dvd writer (combo), asrock extreme3 gen3 MObo or Gigabyte z68a ud3 b3h board, 750W corsair and 8gb 1600 ddr3 ram( also combo). If you dont want to do SLI then get the gigabyte board and a lower PSU and memory combo. Should come out to about 850 on newegg or less depending on the parts you pick.
Okay, I made two builds for you: First Build
This build has a really good CPU/GPU combo, but you won't be able to SLI, and I'm no overclocking pro, but don't expect to overclock like crazy with this. The case is pretty good for the price, though. Maybe if you wait to get $30 more or so you can get an aftermarket CPU cooler. Also, now that I look at it, the PSU for this build is a bit too much, you can go with a good-reviewed Corsair 650W for cheaper and you'll be fine.
This build takes advantage of rebates (It's under $1000 after MIR) and is still a good system. The GPU and CPU are both a step down from the first build, but you can SLI and will probably be able to OC better with the motherboard. The case is fantastic, MUCH better than the one in the previous build, and you also get an aftermarket CPU cooler.
Both of these builds are fine, but personally, I'd prefer the second one.
Also, the build in the above post looks really good.
