2. Budget Range: $300-$400 after rebates.
3. System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching Movies,
4. Parts Not Required:o S, Keyboard and Mouse, Monitor, software (office, Virus protection...)
5. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (must be from here because I am going to buy it in store.)
6. Country: Canada
7. Parts Preferences: I would prefer to use a Intel Sandy Bridges CPU, Radeon 7000 series
8. Graphics Card.
9. Overclocking: Maybe
10. SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
11. Additional Comments: I would prefer if case had a window and the computer is fairly quiet.

Thank you in advance.
