Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: $1000-$1200

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Editing

Parts Not Required:Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: ncix.com, canadacomputers.com

Country: Canada

Parts Preferences:

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Monitor Resolution: Looking for monitor advice. Not included in the budget. 24 or 25 inch would be sufficient.

Additional Comments: Low expertise when it comes to computers. I want to get all my parts from the same site and have them build it for me. I do not want to build it myself.

There was a prebuilt on canadacomputers.com that looked close to what I wanted. A friend I asked for advice pointed out that the Cooler Master PSU might not be great, as well as the lack of an OS.

Are you positive you don't want to build it yourself?
That PC you linked is really overpriced, and you would probably be glad you did it yourself in the future.

I would very much prefer not to build it myself. Ideally it would ship built and with OS. I'm already out of my depth as it is.

He's trying to buy the parts separately (but from one outlet) and pay them to have them build it.

Unless you mean buy parts from multiple sites and then pay someone locally? One of the benefits of having someone like NCIX put it together is that they have a warranty for the complete system functioning then.

To quote myself, I want to get all my parts from the same site and have them build it for me.

Sorry Azeem, I think you misunderstood him. He's looking for recommendations for any parts available from one site that will build it for him. The pre-built one he linked was just something he was looking at, but as he mentioned he realized it was flawed.

Any improvements on it would be most welcome.

(To clarify, I'm the friend he contacted. I put together a rough build from ncix but I haven't kept up in hardware advances in the past few years so I figured people here would be much more helpful.

I would build him the computer but I'm a thousand kilometers away. Also I'm lazy.)

My apologies for not being totally clear. I'm pretty much computer illiterate. Normally I would be the kind of person just buying off Best Buy.

I'm willing and able to pay extra to avoid having to put it together myself.

I will take a look on there. Do they have any pre-builts you would recommend? I don't know enough to put a list of parts together myself.

edit: I'm considering this build right now. If anyone sees any glaring flaws in it, please let me know.

Well I'm not going to build one myself and it's the best option so far.
