Approximate Purchase Date: By the end of the month

Budget Range: $1000 after shipping + taxes (not including rebates)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming/Streaming to others

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: NewEgg

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Parts Preferences: I would like an intel processor with the 7950 gpu.

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I would like the PC to be quiet but if that is not possible for the price range then it is fine if it is not. I would like to be able to play DotA2/Starcraft2 on full graphics on the computer if possible.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current laptop if 3 years old and it runs everything on low graphics =[.

hes in canada and the first few of your links dont work

and yes there is a difference between american prices and canadian prices, therefore require a change in the parts that you recommend

not to mention the nasty shipping fees that newegg charges for their customers in canada

The big troll, I like your recommendation a lot but I was just wondering why you did not include a heatsink+/fan for the cpu. Do any of those parts already come with one o.o?
