Approximate Date of Purchasing: This week

Budget Range: Under $1500 dollars including tax and shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Overall gaming, highest settings if possible.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: Windows 7 Must be included in the ending cost.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon has great deals! Ncix Canada, Newegg Canada.

Location: CANADA, Eh?

Parts Preferences: Hoping to stick with Intel for my CPU, and Nvidia Geforce rather than an AMD Video card.

Overclocking: Not too fond of the "Overclocking." Really not sure if I want to implement that into my system or not..

SLI or Crossfire: Just 1 video card would do it.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: Looking forward to playing Battlefield 3 (Ultra), Garry's mod, Fallout 3, Everything. I have also already picked out a Case for it. One MAJOR thing I am in need of help with is a Motherboard, not exactly sure what to get in that department.


Thanks for Helping! :D
