Hello. I have been researching a lot and I keep getting so confused. I made a few builds. Anyway the main thing I am going to use this for is gaming, of course. Also something that I have to factor in is I will be moving this time to time. I will list more info using the "How to ask advice" thread.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 6-7 weeks from now
BUDGET RANGE: $1,000-$1,400
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming. The games I will be playing are Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, and other ultra graphical games.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com, or whatever site is cheaper.
PARTS PREFERENCES: Not any really. Whatever will get me the best performance.
OVERCLOCKING: Yes, but only if I don't need water cooling
MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want a extra hard drive to have linux.

come back in 6-7 weeks, the closer the date you buy it the better we can appropriate the pricing/deals you can steal(don't make it to close make it about a week to a few days to get some good replies and gives you some space to look out for stuff

I know but I don't want to spend 2 weeks making sure I get all the good parts by the that time.

As Boulbox was saying, check back closer to when you will be purchasing to account for price changes and hardware releases.

As a side note - you may visit http://newbcomputerbuild.com/ for new pc builds every month in the $500, $1000 & $1500 price ranges as these builds do correlate with what you are looking for.
