I've in need of a new computer. The one I'm typing on can barely run minecraft at 20FPS
I'd like to be able to play some graphic intensive games and well. Not just that 8 bit stuff.

Approximate Purchase Date: Next month

Budget Range: Under 750 with rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: General use(web surfing, homework), Gaming, Rendering

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com and Us.Ncix.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Intel, Mid-tower case

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I need a fairly quiet PC that can be used for pretty much everything. Video rendering, gaming, and surfing.
