I've been stuck playing games on my laptop. It can run most, but on extremely low quality, so I figured it was time to upgrade.

Approximate Purchase Date: Sooner the better

Budget Range: $1500 - $2300

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, recording and watching videos

Parts Not Required: I need everything

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences: Again no preference

Overclocking: If I can

SLI or Crossfire: At this time no

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Quiet as possible but performance comes first. I'll also need a mouse, keyboard and monitor.

If you're in Canada, NCIX is a great place to buy parts. I'll get started on creating a build.
