Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com. 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
