Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week (the closer the better)

Budget Range: (1400-1500) After Rebates and After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (gaming, computer programming, graphic design, web browsing)

Are you buying a monitor: No I already have a benq gaming monitor



Parts to Upgrade: everything

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Location: Exeter, New Hampshire 03833
Parts Preferences: I would like an intel computer with air cooling, no liquid cooling and good airflow

Overclocking: Maybe if I learn more about it (tips would be helpful)

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe way later in the future

Your Monitor Resolution:1920x1080
Additional Comments: I would really like a silent computer that runs fast, I do like LED's but they are not needed.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I don't have a desktop and it is hard to do gaming on my laptop. I would really like this computer to last me through college and I am a freshman in high school. I have done some research about building computers and know a little but I am not a star.

-i5s are for games. i7s are for work
-8gb of ram is more than enough for gaming systems. unless you are running VMs or video editing, its not necessary
