Approximate Purchase Date: Around a month out, though I can start buying parts now. Don't have the money to buy it yet or it would be coming sooner, I have no problem with buying the parts as I get the money to do so.
Budget Range: $1300-1600
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing the internet, Streaming video, Watching movies
Parts Not Required: OS, Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard. Will likely be getting new mouse monitor and keyboard eventually but am more worried about the actual tower at this point.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com
Parts Preferences: Nvidia over AMD GPU. Have had good experiences with ASUS parts in the past.
SLI or Crossfire: Potential to upgrade to SLI in the future preferably
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
Additional Comments: This is my first real attempt at building an all new rig. Home from the summer from college and am working so that I can afford a really nice gaming desktop, looking for a fairly high end computer. Been surfing newegg myself today along with various forums and this is what I've come up with so far - really just looking for input since I don't closely follow computer parts and know there are definitively people out there with way more expertise than I have that I certainly could learn a thing or 2 from. Figured I'd go for PCIe 3.0 in case I decide to go SLI in the future.
