Gaming PC Build Advice

Approximate Purchase Date: Next week.


Budget Range: 815 USD


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mostly for gaming. Some Programming activities, movies, CD burning.


Parts Not Required: Monitor, speaker, webcams, OS.


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, ncix.com


Country of Origin: Gombak, Malaysia


Parts Preferences: ASUS ENGTX 560 Ti DCII (Not the TOP ver.) or any other nVidia card (single).
ASUS P8P67


Overclocking: Maybe


SLI or Crossfire: Yes, in the future. (Probably in 3-4 years or when my PC can't handle playing games in Med settings)


Monitor Resolution: For now 1280x1024, but I'll upgrade it to 1680x1050, or 1920x1080 if I have some cash.


Additional Comments: Casing shouldn't be over priced, just simple but cool looking (like CM ELite 334 or Thermaltake V4 and with LED Fan of course.). Also please decide if I should use water or air cooling. If needed, I could add 35 USD more, but only if it has great differences than 815 USD budget. If you have better graphic card and/or mobo solution, please say so.

Thanks a lot.

  2. Funny, the retailers here actually put a bit higher price, so i have to make some changes like getting i5 2400 instead of i5 2500K. Thanks for your suggestions.
