Approximate Purchase Date: 10 December 2012

Budget Range: 1000-1500 USD (want it to be cost efficiency, if 1100 build is not much worse than 1500, I would choose 1100 one)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming: Tera, Guild wars 2, and other mmorpg games at best setting. Working with: SPSS, MS world and maybe Web easy professional in the future.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No need, I will buy in IT mall in my country (Thailand), but I am pretty sure I can find most or all parts easily. The price is very similar to the USA.

Parts Preferences: I prefer I5 3570K for CPU.

Overclocking: Should I? (the guy who will build my PC can do it)

SLI or Crossfire: I dont think so

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920*1080 with 24-inch screen

Additional Comments: I am sorry I dont know much about computer, feel free to ask for information and thank you so much for your help. Also, sorry for my bad english.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Finishing my master and about to experience work life. Laptop is not enough and sometimes too hot on my lap!! and went black out.

Okay, first thing you want to do is watch for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals - you'll get a HELL of a lot better discounts.

Second, the biggest thing you're going to want is a large SSD - put the MMORPGs on there, and load times will be a matter of seconds.

Third... do you only play MMOs? Because if so, you can max them out with a $800 rig.

Fourth... how much is the guy charging you to build your PC? If it's more than about $40, don't bother - it's easy and FUN to build one. Same thing goes for overclocking, and yes, it's worth it - there's no point in buying the "k" version processor if you're not going to overclock.

Thank you DarkSable


- When is black friday? I am not sure if there will be that promotion in Bangkok. If not, I might be interested in buying

parts online but will the warranty be worldwide? (because if i have to ship it back to the US or UK, it will take so long).

- Thank you, I will definitely get the SSD.

- Yes, I pretty much play only MMO games but I want my PC to be upgradable for new CPU and GPU in the future. Will

the 800 build be ok with that?

- The guy who will build for me charge only 30 bucks or maybe less (that's the good thing when you live in developing countries)

Also, can you recommend the website that I can buy computer parts online during black friday and cyber monday. It is necessary that they can ship to Thailand and dealing with warranty is not too complicated.

Thank you
