New System From Scratch

Approximate Purchase Date: 1-4 weeks

Budget Range: $1000-2500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Gaming, Gaming, Multitasking

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers not needed

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Prefer newegg but will take any reliable.

Country: U.S.A.

Parts Preferences: Prefer combatibility across the system whichever brand it may be

Overclocking: Maybe (not a necessity)

SLI or Crossfire: Not interested. Last 2 Crossfire experiences have been horrible will take a single workhorse GPU

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments: Also need a case. Extreme summer temps (100F+ for a month 90F+ for another 2 months) with minimal house cooling. I'd like to go with the components that make it customizable and upgradeable without having to revamp everything at once.

    SSD is needed and Crucial M4 128 is enough to get your OS and essential programs on there. I actually have my OS and all my programs on my ssd (same one) and still have 33g left over. All Games are on a 3tb Raid 0 including non essential programs.
    Mobo and processor to the latest available at the moment. The processor itself with the h100 corsair liquid cooling can be overclocked to 4.8ghz (That's six cores on 4.8 ghz)!!!! The Cpu cooler is easily mounted on the inside top panel of your CM Haf case.
    16Gig Corsair Vengeance at 1600 ddr3. plenty of memory space for anything you do.

    Total price : 2494.11
    not including rebates.

    Hope that helps.
