New Build -- Server

Approximate Purchase Date: 2013 March

Budget Range: $1000 give or take ish. lol

System Usage from Most to Least Important:I would like to use it as a test server and eventually use it to run an online multiplayer 2D dungeon RPG made in C++ / SFML.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: ALL?

Do you need to buy OS: I am not sure which OS i will use

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: / anything that ships to USA, CA

Location: City, State/Region, Country -

Parts Preferences: i prefer intel / nvidia / asus/ msi

Overclocking: no

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, if it comes to it. most likely not since its a server build

Your Monitor Resolution: Doesn't matter really as this will only be used for a server / test machine and i will hook it up to my main gaming monitor for use of a screen

Additional Comments: The parts should last for awhile i dont like cheap vendors / parts. i want performance and reliability. also the case i prefer maximum air flow

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:This will be a new build for a server for me to play with / test my skills on as well as put my C++ code / games onto so people can play them online (2D top down RPG game, in the works)

My current parts list looks like this :

I am up for change and any possible help / pointers, in any area.
