Looks like a build, but, it's out of context. I could be reading Shakespeare or Edgar Allan Poe. If you include detailed information such as usage and budget, location and purchase date, it would be much obliged.

Yeah, I saw the whole Graphics thing also, kinda strange I thought. Maybe planning to use the built in? Nah, that's almost like thinking Shakespeare had a part to do with King James' bible. *Shutter*

Sorry about that. I posted this pretty late at night :D  Well purchase date, sometime this year. Intended use, everyday work as well as gaming. And Graphics card, I am going to stick with the 550 ti i currently have. While it may be a bottleneck, I need more money before I invest in a powerful one :/  Thanks for the help!

Well the amount for all these parts is around $1000, so that's my budget...

Graphics card? $1000 budget for everything or just computer?
You really need to use the guide on *How to Ask for New Build or Upgrade Advice*. I makes it easier for us to help you. And we know what type of build you are looking for.

So I just put this together.
