Approximate Purchase Date: Black Friday to Christmas

Budget Range: $1400 after rebates + shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D rendering, video editing, surfing the internet, light gaming

Parts Not Required: Mouse, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tiger direct, frys, ncix (best buy if magically lower prices)

Country: U.S. (West Coast)

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Intel CPU & motherboard w/PCI-E 3.0

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 at the lowest

Additional Comments: Going to be multitasking, using programs utilizing multiple cores, hyper threading will help (more cores the better!), hoping to overclock to around 4.7GHz, not concerned very much with video card
