Im looking to build a computer for my dad, he is loooking for a FAST computer that will last him a long time. I will be playing starcarft 2 on it, but only with built in gpu because i dont care about graphics.let me start.This computer will be for a hotel, so it needs to be stable

Budget: $1100 including alberta Gst 5 percent and shipping!

Location: I live 3 hours away from Calgary Alberta. I live in Medicine Hat. I dont think ill have any local pick up around here.

Usage: Quickbooks, Photoshop, Business stuff, word, excel, fast computer, adobe, documents, most stuff that a business man will do. NCOMPUING BOX, for host of multiple workstations.

Websites: Any website in Canada, Memory express prefered because they i get really fast shipping for a cheap price because the calgary store is 3 hours away. I like newegg.
Doesnt matter what ever is the cheapet for the components and good.!

Part Preference and wants: I would like to have a ssd 120 gb, 64mb 7200 rpm 1 tb hard drive, z77, i want to get ivy birgde i7 3770k but i heard it getsa hot. its got good graphics in it too. 16gb ram 1600. I would like to get the Azza Spartan 102E because it looks really cool and is cheap and is wide. Im looking at the thermal right silver arrow because its very good for lik $70

Manufacturer preference: Doesnt matter, which ever is the best.

Parts not needed: Windows 7, monitor, speakers, mouse keyboard, etc.



Thanks For your help
the thing that mostly pisses me off is that no one ever replies on my post. but they do on everyone elses.

You might as well just get the 3770 and save a few bucks. If stability is a concern you would most likely not use the unlocked multiplier of the 3770k.
