Additional Comments
: I plan to buy this PC from my place of work and use my employee discount, but if anyone thinks I should get something else, I am more than comfortable building the PC myself and buying the parts separate.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current PC, while being above average, is not a real gaming PC. I love to play games, and I want to start buying more games for PC and only get Call of Duty and Halo for Xbox. So I am in the market for a true gaming PC. Also, I am going to college soon to get a degree in Aerospace Engineering. My father works with Aerospace Engineers as part of his job, and someone who got a degree in that field said that I need a PC that can pump out a lot of processing power for when I have to program.

So far this is what I came up with -- I encourage people to look for discrepancies and flaws -- I'd like this build to be near perfect.
