<$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).

Personally, I've not been a Cooler Master psu fan.
Did you do any research on it?
Other than that, it looks good.
