Approximate Purchase Date: This or maybe next month.

Budget Range: $550 at most w/ S & H

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing, schoolwork

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Mid tower case would be fine.

Additional Comments: Sorry I left you with almost nothing to go on, but I couldn't really think of anything I really wanted. And hey, you can get a little creative. Also, I don't really want a really blingy case.

Also, if you didn't notice, I'm a pretty big newbie when it comes to PC parts and stuff. :p

actually your best bet would be to re-ask your question when you are ready to pull the trigger and order your equipment. prices can change a lot in one month.

Check the $600 build in my sig, minus the OS. You can keep watching the blog regularly until you are ready to pull the trigger, as it is updated regularly with the best deals.
