Hi I am lookiong for advice for building a new gaming PC. I play everquest and Battlefield Bad Company 2 mostly. I am looking to spend $1100-$1300 with no monitor.

1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing. Gaming

2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread $1100-$1300

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from. US

4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture. Intel

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are. Monitor will be reused

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds. OC
