Hey guys, I am new to the forums. I am currently trying to build a new computer. I have around $1200-1500 including tax. Could you guys recommend builds that would get me the most for my money. I currently play at 1080 resolution. As for GPU, I do not care much for SLI/Crossfire. I think one good GPU would do the trick.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: Folding@Home, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies)

Parts Not Required: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) **Include Power Supply Make & Model If Re-using**

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.:, -- to show us selection & pricing)

Country: (e.g.: India) we need to know where these parts are being assembled
