Solved [New Build] ~$1400-$1500 Computer First Time Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: May 24, 2012 1:41 AM in Systems Share icewavezero May 15, 2012 10:59:38 PM Alright, I've been looking around, and here is pretty much what I think is good. Again, first build. Thoughts? Approximate Purchase Date: Not sure, within a month Budget Range: ~$1400 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Serious Internet surfing (50+ tabs) Parts Not Required: Headphones, Mouse, Keyboard Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com, Amazon.com Country: California, America Parts Preferences: by brand or type I would like Intel (Needed), and I am probably wrong, but I believe ASUS is the better choice monitor wise? Not sure. Overclocking: Maybe SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in the future Monitor Resolution: Eh… Idk? Additional Comments: I want something pretty boss. Now let's move on to my part selections. I am just starting this out, feel free to adjust. Revised. So far I have pretty much the final build. Reply by the end of nextweek-ish if you think I should change something.
