Approximate Purchase Date: This week. More so ASAP


Budget Range: 800 - 850. Max. I want this to be my final price when I order the parts.


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Editing film\mixes, surfing internet.


Are you buying a monitor: Possibly, but at the moment, no.


Parts to Upgrade: Would like to upgrade later in the future. But this is a whole new rig.


Do you need to buy OS: Yes


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Preferably NewEgg. Possibly also, frys. Or if there is a site like slickdeals then that would be awesome, just anything that is reliable and helpful on prices.


Location: CA,USA


Parts Preferences: Intel\Geforce


Overclocking: Maybe


SLI or Crossfire: Maybe (still researching what this is.)


Your Monitor Resolution: 1600x1200. Possibly getting a new monitor later. Most likely at 1920x1200.


Additional Comments: I would like a quiet PC. like a way to have a fanning system to keep everything cool and not overheat. Just want space to upgrade parts later in the future.


And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Store bought computer died. (Surprise!)

thanks. I read some of the customers reviews on newegg and It says it's been faulty and DOA. Any suggestions or some sort?
also, would a seagate be better than WD? I'm juts asking these questions out of curiosity. I really appreciate that you took the time to answer this thread.

What's faulty and DOA? The store reviews are not the most accurate or reliable source for product information. There's other places to look for better product reviews.

Well four manufacturers have been consolidated into two - Hitachi sold to Western Digital and Samsung sold to Seagate, so it's pretty much take your pick.
