Approximate Purchase Date: This week or sometime this month

Budget Range: Max 1,000$

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the internet

Are you buying a monitor: Yes, but I'm using the HD TV for now. Ill buy a monitor later.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: its a 30 min drive to the Microcenter, NJ, Patterson.

Location: New City, New York, US

Parts Preferences: Really would like to run Arma 2 Dayz or the Standalone. I believe the intel core i5 2500k will do. Using an HD TV for now till I get more money. Just need an OS and keyboard

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: I really don't know. Would this monitor do?
ASUS VH236H Black 23"

Additional Comments: It doesn't have to be quiet. Need a ok looking case. Games like Diablo 3, Arma 2, Battlefield 3. On high or at least medium.

This what I got so far.

micro center cheaper for some parts.
169.00 newer cpu run cooler stock voltages.
like asus it a thicker board will little better parts on the low end the the board you picked out.
this one will do sli if you need to with two slots.
90.00 after rebate. it beter to over size a power supply if you switch out to a bigger gpu later on.
