So far I have tried to create a decent theoretical build ( http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ke0Y ) (There is a newegg deal for $20 off with that cpu and motherboard, as for the other parts I am unsure of any deals), but I am fine with changing the parts out.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next 2 weeks.
Budget Range: Somewhere close to 1000, but I am open to going a small bit above as a monitor, keyboard, and mouse will likely push me above.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, and then simple tasks like word documents, surfing the internet, etc.
Are you buying a monitor: Yes, though I am really not sure what type of features seem reasonable for a monitor with my theoretical build's hardware.
Parts to Upgrade: All
Do you need to buy OS: No
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No specific website required.
Location: City, State/Region, Country - Spartanburg, SC, United States.
Parts Preferences: by brand or type: No specific preferences
Overclocking: Not likely.
SLI or Crossfire: Perhaps in the future when my card becomes a little outdated.
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 would be nice.
Additional Comments: This is my first computer build, so any advice will be greatly appreciated!
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Need a personal computer with capability for gaming.
