Approximate Purchase Date: December.

Budget Range: €1,000 is the maximum I'd spend.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet.

Parts Not Required: Mouse.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Honestly, I live in Ireland and I do not know any websites which sell parts here. No preference.

Country: Ireland

Parts Preferences: No preferance, just hope for a good gaming desktop.

Overclocking: Maybe.

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe.

Monitor Resolution: I need to buy a monitor too.

Additional Comments: For my graphics card, I would prefer a Nvidia / Radeon one. And as you can probably tell, this is the first desktop I'll be attempting to build, so I need all the advice I can get.

It will not let me edit the post, don't know why, but I did find an Irish website for parts.

This comes out to roughly € 1000. You can cut the price down by going with the gtx 560 ti which I linked at the bottom of this post.

Hi, thanks for this! I'm confused why you have two different graphics cards?
