Budget Range: 1000-1300

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, watching videos, surfing the net, homework

Parts Not Required: HD and windows (already have a 1TB hd with windows 7)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any websites (what ever is cheap... Currently I am using PC Part Picker)

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences: None

Overclocking: Slight overclocking

Additional Comments: My build is listed below. I've done thorough research on the parts. I was wondering if my build is solid, and if you can offer a better price for the same performance then that would be helpful. I want a pc that can run Starcraft on high frame rates, league of legends, old republic, battlefields, border lands, crysis and left 4 dead 2. I'm hoping to run these games on the highest settings. I have provided a link and individual components for my soon to be pc. Please offer any advice that could cut down the cost, but without altering the performance too much.

Thanks in advance! =D

Wow! Excellent! Thank you so much!

I did research on all your recommendations and I'm more than impressed!

Did you have any peripherals in mind?

I'm the wrong one to ask about that. I use a $15 Logitech keyboard and a $40 Logitech tracbal to game with. I hear good things though about that Logitech G110 keyboard , the Microsoft boards, and the Logitech G500 mouse...but man there's a lot of good mice out on the market atm to choose from. <----- Keyboards @ Direct Canada <----- Mice @ Direct Canada <----- Keyboards @ Best Direct <----- Mice @ Best Direct
