(Another) ~700 Gaming PC Build Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: November 27, 2011 7:54 PM in Systems Share JB44 November 27, 2011 7:44:16 PM 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.
