Help Build Gaming PC $1500

Approximate Purchase Date: Next 2 months or so.

Budget Range: $700-$1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Play games with lots of mods on each game. Creating video projects. Online gaming (MMORPGs). Surfing the web. Watching movies.

Monitor Resolution: High definition of any kind.

Additional Comments: Will be playing it for long hours so it will need to be able to take the heat. Im just looking for the best computer I can build so I can get the best graphics and performance. I want to play battlefield 3 and skyrim and get mods for both so all input helps. I am just lost in this field.

I also want not just the tower but a good mouse, keyboard and monitor to go along with it.

I also prefer to finance it and pay monthly so a good website for that would be great. Thanks.

    Unless u can't wait like me. My advise OP is get a good quality used GPU or find one on sale for a great price so u can sell it when the new GPUs come out. I got lucky and got the EVGA GTX 590 from Microcenter for $500, but like I said that was luck.

    A for CPU i5 2500k is best for gaming, along with z68 or p67 mobo.

    Mouse depends on hand grip & play style. The RAT 7 is my favorite for FPS. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826102062&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Mouse-_-Cyborg-_-26102062
  4. For monitor I'm using my 55in HDTV until I save up for a good 2560x1600 monitor but those are expensive as hell. But actually I'm loving my huge HD screen and it might be hard to go down to a 30in or smaller.
