System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Word Processing, Watching Streams, Web Browsing.
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, OS.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Microcenter. I have one of these about an hour away. If I were to order off of Newegg I would need to pay shipping and Tax as I am from New Jersey. The store I would buy from is in Patterson, NJ.
Country of Origin: U.S.
Parts Preferences: Thinking an i5 2500k but not sure on GPU.
SLI or Crossfire: Yes, by Christmas (gift).

Additional Comments: I would love a case with a side window. I play games like WoW, the new Star Wars MMO, D3, SC2, and will play games like Skyrim and other RPGs as well as some FPS. Hopefully I can get a decent machine for running BF3.
I look forward to hearing back from you guys!

It will be a tight fit but you should be able to get:
CPU: i5 2500k $180 Mobo: Z68 based Gigabyte or Asrock $130 supporting SLI Mem: 2x4GB 1.5V CAS9 1600Mhz $50 GPU: GTX560Ti $210 Case: something in the $50-60 range HAF912, Antec 300 PSU: 750W PSU PC power and cooling, Corsair, Antec, XFX $100 DVD: DVD writer $20 HDD: 1TB HDD $60 CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper EVO $35
Is the GTX 560 ti the best out there for the budget? How are AMD cards? I've heard that they don't work so well with Blizzard games and a few others.
