Approximate Purchase Date: Probably April

Budget Range: $800 Before shipping / after rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (LoL, GW2, Skyrim, etc.) Social Networking, Movies/Youtube, Homework

Are you buying a monitor: Yes.

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Preferably Newegg

Location: Winnipeg, MB, Canada

Parts Preferences: None

Overclocking: Not Needed

SLI or Crossfire: Currently have a desktop that runs SLI. Again, not necessary, but if cheap enough for good graphics cards will certainly consider.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080 or above.

Additional Comments: Would like a PC that runs relatively quiet, graphics and speed. Not looking to play on "super ultra-break your face with all these pixels and high def" in games, but a good to high would be nice. 8GB of RAM and a 1TB harddrive(7200RPM) would be great.


And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I game a lot. My laptop is just about dead. Looking for something that can run most games on relatively high settings.

Thanks in Advance.
