Approximate Purchase Date: Next two weeks.

Budget Range: $1000, would like to go to $900 w/ rebates if applicable.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mid-range gaming (LotRO, WoW, Call of Duty, with some flexibility for RPGs that may or may not include The Witcher and Skyrim), browsing.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, speakers.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference, although I'd like something trustworthy, reliable and budget-friendly.

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: No preference.

Overclocking: Possibly.

SLI or Crossfire: Not sure.

Monitor Resolution: Still looking to purchase one. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Additional Comments: I need a reliable, strong gaming model with flexibility for the future. I have also never built before, so components optimized for painless assembly would be preferable (removable mobo trays in the case, etc).
