Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next week and a half. (June 12-June 23, 2015)

Budget Range: $400-$600 (After rebates, Before Shipping if possible) *Can go over by about 50 dollars but I would prefer the stated range*

System Usage: Both for Gaming and for College (Research)

Buying Monitor: [strike]If it is able to fit within the budget.[/strike] *Update* No need for monitor.

OS: No

Preferred Website: Amazon if possible

Location: Brownsville, TX USA.

Part Preference: I found a case that I liked, Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-02, but anything will be appreciated, preferably a red theme.

Overclocking: I'm not very sure what this is, but yes please.

SLI or Crossfire: Again, I am not very familiar with these, but either if beneficial and within price range.

Monitor Resolution: I am not too sure, what would be recommended?

Additional Comments: This will be my first ever build and and hoping to bring it to college, a mid tower case or something around that size would be prefered as it would be easier to move around. The only game I do play now is League, because of my restriction on a Macbook, not a pro, but a macbook. I do like the color red, but anything that you all find that will also be appreciated. Thanks!

Why am I upgrading: I have a macbook laptop, and I would like to change back. I want to have a PC that can run games such as league without having to wait 5 minutes to load in game.

Thanks again for all the help in advance!

Oh no, I won't need the monitor or windows within the $600. Sorry if I made it really confusing.

Hello! Thank you so much for the build, I really like everything. For the case, could you give other suggestions? I may be able to go over a bit on the budget for another case. Thank you again!
