Budget Range: 900

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming mostly

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Brand New PC

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, amazon

Location: Central America, i'm shipping this so final price would be 1100 approx.

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, I'll be using HD 32" LCD TV, I'll then buy Asus 21.5" LED HD monitor.

Additional Comments: I already bought the HAF 912 Case. PSU chosen would be preffered because I get it for a good price here instead of shipping one. Should I buy CPU Cooler even if overclocking is not 100% sure?

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My laptop is old and slow.

I've done a pc it is this one.

no you dont, you can always buy it and install later. However it is best to decide now because you can save ALOT (50-100 easily) if you decide not too. Also for that budget you should be able to fit a SSD in there.

I'm fine without SSD. But what do you mean about saving 50-100?

Did you buy it already? Dont know anything about ocz PSUs but id stick to something thats less overkill for your build and from a reputable PSU manufacturer.

Just asked if OCZ are good and they told me they are, I can get 600w if I don't need 700w. Only thing i buyed is case.
