Need a $1000 or less gaming build
Oct 31, 2011, 5:07 PM
Approximate Purchase Date: (e.g.: this week (the closer the better)) Within the next month.
Budget Range: (e.g.: 600-800) $1000 or less.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies): Gaming, surfing the net
Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS): PSU I already have:OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V
Keyboard, Mouse, monitor, speakers, OS.
Have had the PSU for a year. Should last for another 3 years according to reviews.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing) Newegg.com
Country of Origin: (e.g.: Grand Fenwick): United States
Parts Preferences: No preference. Though Intel builds are looking better right now.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Additional Comments: I do have an ATX case, but it doesn't look like it'd cool a gaming rig the greatest. My old system is falling behind, so I need an upgrade.
