New system build for gaming

Approximate Purchase Date: Tomorrow if the cyber Monday deals look good.

Budget Range: 900-1k after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, internet surfing, occasional movie watching.

Parts Not Required:monitor, keyboard, speakers, mouse

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: intel processor, and nvidea graphics card, other than that its up in the air

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: down the road. Mobo should be SLI capable, but I'll be running 1 card for the time being.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments:prefer a quiet PC and one that has good possibility to be upgraded in the future.


Depending on the deals coming out tomorrow, I will be looking to buy all or most of the components for this system. I don't think there are any compatability issues with these parts, but let me know what you think of this build. I'm not sold on the SSD over the HDD, but the 120GB SSD is almost the same price as a 500gb HDD. I'm currently managing with a 80GB HDD but it is pretty maxed out. all I have on it is games and OS files really outside of microsoft office. I know the PSU i have won't be enough for an SLI build, but I'll most likely just 1 card.

    If your going to spend that much money you are going to want 8gs of ram but after that looks pretty good. I would consider a bigger hardrive though as you fill them up faster than you would think.
