Gaming build

Approximate Purchase Date: Jan 2012

Budget Range: $600~1000 a little more is acceptable but not too far out of line.


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming / Music : Moderate gaming mostly Diablo III and Final Fntasy XIV partly as a media center


Parts Not Required: mouse , monitor, speakers


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: prefer micocenter amazon and newegg


Country: USA


Parts Preferences: I like MSI and ASUS parts


Overclocking: none to mild


SLI or Crossfire: not needed but optional


Monitor Resolution: 2560x1440


Additional Comments: Would prefer a closed loop liquid cooling and always preferred AMD parts. Looking for a decent gamin build, something that will hold up for a bit or be easily upgradable. would also like a good recommendation on a nice gaming oriented keyboard preferably with a small auxiliary monitor on it(don't include this in the build cost)

    BTW, resolution is NOT irrelevant for video card recommendations. I wish there was a big sign on Toms home page that explicitly says "We need to know your resolution!!!"

    Criminy, how hard is this?
