Approximate Purchase Date: Christmas(ish)

Budget Range: ~$700 after rebates.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, web surfing, classwork.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, or any other reputable sites.
Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Probably AMD, mainly because it seems to be more performance for less cash.

Overclocking: Yes if possible.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future.

Monitor Resolution: unknown-wife will probably buy me one for Christmas, and I have no idea what it will be.

Additional Comments: The bulk of things will be purchased after Christmas, however I have about $400 saved already, and will purchase things before if I find a great deal. I'm hoping to score on tomorrow's big Cyber Monday sale.
