Approximate Purchase Date: today

Budget Range:

GPU: around $200
MB: $100 or less(unless you guys really think otherwise)
CPU: around $200
RAM: around $40
PSU: you tell me

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, photoshop

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Amazon only

Location: California, USA

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: Best I can afford to run.

Additional Comments: I'm looking for the best value for my money. For example, if there's a great deal on something that is a little more expensive, I would definitely consider it so feel free to give a few options. Concerning the motherboard, I don't really know enough about it to make a good decision. I don't know about crossfire or anything else, but I do know that I'd like something with some room to upgrade in the future. Also, I can only order from Amazon for various boring reasons. THANK YOU for your help!
