Hello all,

First time posting on these forums, and I could really use some suggestions and feedback on a system that I am currently planning on putting together. Im going to try my best in following the "How To Ask For New Build Advice" as provided on this forum.

Approximate Purchase Date:

Oct 2011 till Jan 2012

Budget Range:

$800-950 prior to sales taxes of 13% ($1070 tax included)

System Usage from Most to Least Important:

Gaming, Watching HD movies, Web surfing, Music

ooops I think I accidentally posted this thread while typing the rest of my post. for the complete list of my preferred system components go this this thread . I would highly appreciate your feedback, as this is my first eve build and the last time I upgraded my system was 5 years ago.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
