Approximate Purchase Date: Around "New Years" (I know prices are going to go down or maybe up, but I just want to get an idea)

Budget Range: Around $900 After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mostly Gaming....But Multimedia Processing aswell

Parts Not Required: Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse/pad....No Operating System Needed, I have a copy of Windows 7 pro 64-bit at home

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, Amazon, and maybe

Country: United States

Parts Preferences: "Intel Core i5 2500k" but I have already found one @ Micro Center for 179.99

Overclocking: Most Likely

SLI or Crossfire: In the Future

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, But I have already found a monitor @ Newegg for 159.99 after rebate;

Additional Comments: Intel based System for MOSTLY gaming.....500GB 7200RPM WD BLUE HDD and at least a 60GB SSD....power supply doesnt have to be enough for SLI because I will Upgrade to a higher power supply when Needed! "8GB 1600 DDR3 RAM"! CM Hyper 212 PLUS

Thank You!

Best solution

If you are putting that monitor into the mix you will have big trouble staying under the $900 cap.

However if the $900 does not include the monitor or OS you are on solid ground.

Seems like you have a lot figured out already.

Yea I have done a lot of research and the OS and monitor is not included in my $900 range. Thank you for your post and I will definitly consider it! :)
