Approximate Purchase Date: 5/8/12

Budget Range: $950-1050: I don't trust rebates.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming

Parts Not Required: PC Monitor and speakers (Dynex: DX-24), Keyboard and Mouse (Microsoft Wireless), Harddrive (re-using Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive), Sound Card (don't care)


Preferred Website for Parts: newegg.com

Countrye.g.: U.S.) we need to know where these parts are being assembled

Parts Preferences:by brand or type: I prefer Nvidia (Asus EVGA) and Intel, since they haven't let me down yet, though I am open to alternatives.

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

I posted here two weeks ago (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/343601-31-1000-gaming...), and got very good suggestions that I am planning to go ahead with, but as suggested, I figured I should check back one or two days before I buy it. Thanks in advance for your time and help. Here is what was suggested:


AMD 7950, 2500k, 8gb corsair vengeance, PC power and cooling 760w psu, Asrock extreme4 z77, HAF 912
