First PC 1500$ budget (U.S)

Approximate Purchase Date: N/A
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse and monitor (using tv)
SLI or Crossfire: Possibly in the future (same goes for overclocking)

I'm looking to build my first PC around the new GTX 670 with a budget of 1500$ (USD). It will be used (from most to least) for Gaming, Video Editing, 3D/2D animation and general use. I do live in driving distance from a micro center aswell so I'd prefer to buy from them (newegg if not). Please help.

  2. Thanks for the response! I was wondering though if you could find the same build (or something equal) to that from micro center? With that set up I could upgrade to an i7 for 30$ more from them and before anyone says "go look yourself" I haven't a clue about motherboards and whats compatible X_X
  3. Anyone....?

    I've always found Micro Center's selection to be really limited from what Newegg offers - if you want to buy from there, that's fine but this is just a guide to work with in order to get the best system you can get for your money.
