Location: Eden prairie mn, 55344
Parts Preferences: I've heard alot of good things about intel. My last system was AMD and ran fine but if intel is pulling ahead in performance/cost I'll go with them. Not to picky
Overclocking: Maybe, I don't like overclocking because it voids warranties. But down the road if the computer cant handle what I throw at it, I can over clock.
SLI or Crossfire: Yes
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920X1080
Additional Comments: I wanna be able to run guildwars 2, and skyrim at ultra graphics. I dont need SLI right now but down the road I'd like to have it incase I want to upgrade without tearing the whole computer apart. I dont need SSD (dont understand the point of it). Basically I want a computer thats gonna be able to handle games that come out for 2-3 years, reasonably.
Basically need a solid system with no major bottlenecks that I can upgrade(easily) down the road if needed
