Approximate Purchase Date: Approximate Purchase Date: Two to three months from intial posting 6/29/12

Budget Range: $600-700 before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important:Recording (Fraps), streaming (, gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies.

Parts Not Required: OS, keyboard, mouse, speakers, graphics card and monitor.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or

Country:United States

Parts Preferences: None unless other prompted to lean towards one.

Overclocking: No.

SLI or Crossfire: No.

Monitor Resolution: 1980x1080

Additional Comments: This computer will be intended for streaming and recording within a gaming context. Graphical capability is secondary to the need (I assume) for a strong processing power. In addition to a HDD with at least 7,200 RPM. The cost of this card total that I paid before rebate ($177) can be subtracted from the total budget.

I already purchased a new graphics card: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (100314-3L )

I'd really appreciate the help and input here before I attempt to do this myself. Thanks!
