Budget Range: before rebates about $800.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Home usage and mostly for gaming.
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, GPU got XFX HD Radeon 6850, a Full Tower case.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, but will prob just go to CompUsa
Parts Preferences: Im kinda in Between to companies one is quite cheaper than the other. AMD and Intel. I like Intel a little better cause i noticed there cpu's run alittle cooler.
Overclocking: No, i would like to stay away from OC for hardware survivability.
SLI or Crossfire: No
