Approximate Purchase Date: Late March this year.

Budget Range: 1500 MAX. The lower the better

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming as well as streaming my gaming

Are you buying a monitor: Yes.

Parts to Upgrade: Whole New Build.

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or amazon, but really where ever is the cheapest.

Location: City, State/Region, Country -West Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Parts Preferences: by brand or type Prefer Intel CPU and Geforce GFX

Overclocking: Maybe if I can learn how and have cooling to do so.

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, but in the near future when I buy a second card.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024

Additional Comments: I just need to run games like WoW, Counter strike CS GO on max settings as well as stream them. I have the internet to do so. I will only have 3-5 games on my computer and vent, xfire. So if I can get by with just an SSD drive that would be awesome. Again max budget of 1500, but would like to get it closer to 1000 if possible.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Want a new computer that will allow me to play WoW, CS, Call of Duty Black ops 2 on max settings and stream them as well. THanks!

More about 1500 intel build help
  1. Do you need a monitor? Is there a reason why you put your monitor resolution if you need one? I'm a bit confused.
    Here's a build without monitor or peripherals, feel free to add stuff etc. Right now it's at just over $1000.
  2. I want to buy a monitor, but wont at this time. A few months down the road I will upgrade mine. Sorry about the confusion. Also, thank you for the link. Never seen the website and also a nice build.
  3. Mine is similar to the above build but with a few changes:
