Approximate Purchase Date: Beginning of next month.

Budget Range: $1000 Before Rebates; after Shipping if possible

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: I have a monitor, mouse and keyboard. I need everything else.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Familiar with newegg, but it doesn't really matter.

Location: abbotsford, Canada

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: I'd like to max out new games if possible.( ACIII, battlefield 3, The Secret World, etc.) Also, thank you very much. I've never done this, but I've read that you can get a much better deal by building your own, so I'm going to try it.

if you dont mind driving to the ncix langley store, you can pick the stuff up there instead of getting it shipped

whichever store is closer

most of this stuff can be priced match at you just need to provide the url to do so.

if you go to the store and buy stuff there, you can probably negotiate a nice discount but that isnt always guaranteed

Everything looks awesome, but I'm just wondering will the 500w on the psu be ok?

its actually overkill but it will do you fine. if you are going to crossfire (you said you wouldnt), id get a bigger board and a 600w psu
