$700-800 Gaming Build

Approximate Purchase Date: The end of the summer, either mid-August or September.

Budget Range: $700-800 after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Skyrim, Battlefield 3, that level of graphics intensity)

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers (anything external)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Mid-Tower case, Intel CPU, nVidia GPU

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Not currently, maybe in future (1-3 years)
