Approximate Purchase Date: this week, or longer if I need to wait for rare parts
Budget Range: max 1500 or 2000 Before Rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: The target purpose is playing my favorite MMOs (not WoW, but Champions Online and maybe Guild Wars 2) at max settings even during Raids. Maybe play around with some graphics mods for Crysis or Skyrim.
Parts Not Required: I'm going to buy everything new
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, amazon.com, but I don't really care
Parts Preferences: not really
Overclocking: Maybe, afraid of it
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, I just want to maximize performance
Monitor Resolution: idk, north of 1280x1024
Additional Comments: I would like this computer sooner than later, but I will wait for the best if they are not immediately available. Top priority is playing MMOs at max settings!
Both the gtx 680 and 670 are great cards by looking at the benchmarks. The 670 is rumored to be released at the end of this week at an est $400. The big question is will they be on the shelves re: 680.
