Approximate Purchase Date: January

Budget Range: >$1500, can squeeze out maybe $1600, but I'd like some money for games

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming

Are you buying a monitor: Yes

Parts to Upgrade: all

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, NCIX or Amazon if the price is good

Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin

Parts Preferences: really like Corsair 650D, Nvidia GPU, whatever is best bang for buck

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: windows are nice, would like to keep with a blue theme, but price and performance are more important

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I have a Dell laptop...

This is what I currently have picked out:



Everything looks good from this end I would reduce the RAM to 8GB no reason to have 16GB for gaming

I would bump up the PSU to 750W so that you can have SLI in the future
if not
take it down to 550W and get a 670 or 7950
