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?
