Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: As soon as possible, hoping to take advantage of the upcoming Cyber Monday deals.

Budget Range: $600-$800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, video editing, web, word processing.

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: None

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg is preferable, but anything is cool.

Location: Massachusetts, US

Parts Preferences: No preference.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I'm really leaving this all in your control. I know next to nothing about building computers and obviously have not built one before, so I'm looking for any suggestions that fulfill my requirements. I'd be playing primarily TF2 among other FPS games, and I'd be using Vegas Pro to do editing.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Old computer is getting slow overall, can not handle most of the games I would like to play, and editing on it is a nightmare.

In your budget you better drop OC and Sli/xfire.
