Approximate Purchase Date: Prob this either this Christmas or on April 2013.. but don't consider this too much since i can check the price and replace it to better one.
Budget Range: ~ $1500.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: high quality gaming;
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: no preference. as long as you think it's a trustworthy site it's good for me too. Country: currently - USA, WA;
Parts Preferences: Intel, Nvidia
Overclocking: Yes, but no stress...
SLI or Crossfire: NOPE


So as you guys see I'm pretty new to this customizing the pc for gaming, and I have all the gaming equip except the good gaming desktop...and I might be use computer for music too(such as connect to soundboard or 5.1 or 7.1 sound sys) in the future... but for now its more for gaming ^^

Please help me !!!!
