Hi, I'm looking to build my first gaming PC and I was wondering if I can get some recommendations on parts to put in it. I do not have a specific build in mind right now, but I'm mainly looking for an intel build with a GTX 670. I'm also hoping for a full tower case and an SSD as my primary drive, but if my budget does not allow this I can live without one. The most important thing for me is that this build be easily upgradable in the future.

Budget: $1400 (includes keyboard and mouse)

Preferred Websites: Newegg

Overclocking: Probably

SLI or Crossfire: Definitely SLI in the future

Location: California

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 (single monitor)

Thanks.

Where in Cali do you live? If you live near Orange County, there is a microcenter there.

Unfortunately I live in North Cal, around the bay area.

Thanks a lot for your recommendation. I just have one more question, what cables do I need to buy in order to connect my PC to a monitor?

While using all Coupons, and Promo Codes, the grand total should be around $1,579.09
If this is too much, down grade the CPU and get a different Cooler. I suggest these.
