Approximate Purchase Date: Dec, When I get home from this deployment in the middle east!

Budget Range: $3000 and below

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming. ( SC2, WOW, and I want to be able to play any new games coming out to on max setting like SWTOR.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com or any other trusted website!

Country of Origin: AMERICA(*** Yeah) =p

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Intel first but will accept AMD if I need it.

Overclocking: Maybe (I'm not that knowledgeable into OC and stuff)

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe. If the GTX 590 or AMD 6990 is enough I think I would like that more more. Like I said Im not to good with that stuff though.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 or more.

Additional Comments: Please have fun with this and help me out. I plan on getting everything right before I come home so when I arrive back into country its there waiting to be put together and played hard..
