Holiday times are supposedly the best time for buying. I'm looking for a system that gets the job done. I have a max of 1500$ but i only want a computer that will get all my school work done and quench my thirst for high quality games. I want it to be able to play crysis on a high quality. I've gone through computer builds online many times and know a general idea of all the components. I'm hoping for a pretty big screen to put up a few pages up at the same time.

Wish List:

Big screen
full tower case
smooth graphics
decent speakers

i need all the compnents, the whole 9 yards

Don't need mouse an keyboard or OS




Came up with a pretty good list

I agree with Bonzai82, the CPU is the odd one out there, you will need to either choose a 1366 socket processor or change the motherboard (and possibly RAM) to suit the 1156 socket you have listed.

Other than that it looks pretty nice, also you'll need to find the stuff you want in stock somewhere (obviously).

Cheers :)

The i7-920 is a 1366 Socket processor, it's the only one that will work in your motherboard that you've chosen so far.
