    <$1500 PC Build

    This is actually reposted from another forum, I thought I'd get a second opinion
    I'm a first time builder looking to build a PC for gaming, programming, and maybe creating music and so on.

    APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Around now

    BUDGET RANGE: $1500 USD limit

    SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Multitasking, Storage, Video, Music, etc.

    PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Mouse, Speakers

    PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg, or anywhere else I can get a good deal; microcenter

    PARTS PREFERENCES: Some stuff listed below

    OVERCLOCKING: Yes, at stock or under stock voltage. I've never OCed before.

    SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe down the road

    MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I would like stability, ability to multitask, ability to play most of the latest games without frame rate/graphics problems.
    I might add another comparable hard drive to this computer down the road, and as mentioned above, another graphics card (though the latter would only be if I

    notice a performance issue with games, and not something I have a definite plan on including).

    Welcome to the Forum! http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=491697
    Personally, I've not been a Cooler Master psu fan.
    Did you do any research on it?
    Other than that, it looks good.
    You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares.
