New Computer Build

Approximate Purchase Date: I prefer by the end of this week but next week or two can do.

Budget Range: 1000ish after Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing the Internet, School, Editing Videos

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com. If there's a better place with better pricing I wont hesitate to buy from that either.

Country: United States

Parts Preferences: Nothing really.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1600x900

Additional Comments:

I would like to have an SSD for the OS and other essential programs. If possible I would like it to generate with as little heat that I can get away with. Prefer a 1.5TB - 2TB HDD.

I'm not trying to play BF3 on max settings but I would like to be able to continue to play new games a couple years from now on medium settings.

I would also like to be able to use this with my 50" Panasonic Plasma every now and then as well.

This will be running on Windows 7.

Thank you in advance!!
