Approximate Purchase Date: Within 2 weeks, no greater.
Budget Range: Around $1000 (not including monitors/os) after rebates, somewhat flexible though if spending a bit more makes a substantial difference.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: I'm starting to take trading (stock market) more serious, so I'd like to have at least 3 monitors. I'm also looking into affliate marketing so I need the ability to have many browser windows open with multiple tabs. I would like the ability to be able to play hd video from it, so I could watch it on my lcd tv (most comps should do this easily I'm sure.) I don't game at all really, so that's not very important.
Parts Not Required: 1 Monitors, Already own a copy of win 7.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Not partial, best price if it's a reliable website (I live by a micro center.)
Country: United States.
Parts Preferences: No allegiance to any particular brand or type, whatever works best for the money I suppose.
Overclocking: Maybe, I'm not sure it will be necessary if I'm not gaming, but if it's easy enough maybe.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, It might be nice to have 4 monitors at some point in the future, but 3 should be ok for now. Is there any other good reason to go for this over eyefinity? It seems more expensive.
Monitor Resolution: Right now I only have one monitor I will be using and it's 1920x1080, others should be similar.
Additional Comments: Like I said this is my first build, and I'm not at all completley caught up on all the new technologies out there in the computer world. One of my main concerns is making sure I can sucessfully run 3 different monitors. I've lurked this forum a little bit, and I have a few parts I've looked into, and would love feedback on them. I'm open to any good suggestion on this build, thanks!
Any suggestions on memory/case/power supply/drives/etc, would be great. I'm open to changing anything in this set-up that will help improve it, I definitely trust this forums expertise over mine! Thanks for reading this long post!
Thanks sosofm! That list looks much better!
I went to micro-center the other day to purchase the 2500k and they had a deal going on, on motherboards. It turns out that they may be competitve to newegg with some stuff.
They had some different parts though. How do these parts compare to the ones sosofm has listed, assuming they can compete on price?
