$1500 Gaming PC With Peripherals

Approximate Purchase Date: by the end of 2012

Budget range: ~$1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (specifically Arma and Just Cause 2), Online movie watching, Microsoft office

Are you buying a monitor: I have an aoc (link below), is an upgrade needed? if not then I will not be purchasing a monitor http://www.amazon.com/AOC-I2353PH-23-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B0062K9LXE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1353788361&sr=8-2&keywords=aoc+monitor

Do you need an OS: no

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, amazon

Location: Orlando, Florida, United States

Parts preferences: Intel, Nvidia

Overclocking: if i can figure it out, yes but nowhere past 4.5

Sli or Crossfire: in the future when funds allow

Monitor resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: A mouse, keyboard, and headset are needed. I'd prefer not to skimp out on these parts if budget allows. Liquid cooling is prefered as i do HATE the look of air coolers. Also I will be transporting this case quite a bit. A case like a Corsair C70 or NZXT vulcan with carry handles would be preferred.

Thank you very much for the help,

    leaves room to upgrade

    C70 has bad airflow

    7870 is up to par to a 660 Ti, can upgrade to a 7970 if you want to.

    some headsets i recommend

    if you do not need a mic, i would go with some studio headsets which sounds a lot better than "gaming" headset

    NOTE: gaming headset is only a term to advertise "this is great for gaming" when it is pretty much the same as many others
  2. also if you can allow it


    get this SSD instead, it is a beast and for the price it is getting sold out everywhere
  3. Thanks very much for the help.Do you not reccomend spending the full $1500? and what about keyboard/mouse?
  4. I leave keyboard and mouse to you, it is what ever you need/want to upgrade for that i left out, these are pretty much what you want for the build.

    for keyboard find cherry MX blues,reds, or blacks

    mouse is mostly on preference, i like heavy mouses so Logitech G9X or something along of those lines.
