My build was just under $1k thanks to this board. It runs Oblivion and Call of Duty 4 at 1900x1200 pretty well, and is ready for Crossfire if I need the performance.

Search the threads around here and see what you want.

We need to know the budget, where you're buying from, any fanboyism, etc.

Edit: Almost forgot. We need to know when you're buying. Some people have a thing for planning their build now, then buying it like 3 months later. >.<

In my first thread i said price doesnt really matter. But if you want some kind of guidelines nothing above 3k plzz.

Where im buying from i was thinking direct canada unless theres a better place out there that ships in canada.

Any fanboyism, negative.

And for when i want to buy it, well the sooner the better.

What are the intended uses of the PC? Just e-mail/IM, heavy gaming, mild gaming, Photoshop, A/V encoding? You just said "gaming PC"....is that the majority of it's use?
