post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am new here and hoping for help building my new gaming rig for $2000-2200. My only requirement is a Sandy Bridge CPU and a top quality SSD, at least for games/OS. I am looking to purchase within the next 2-3 weeks. Any help is strongly appreciated.

No keyboard/mouse/monitor just a tower for high end gaming. With BF3 coming out and SWTOR I want high res/maxed graphics/ssd for fast load times on games. I usually buy a new PC ever 3-4 years and usually go pretty high end with moderate overclocks so I don't need to upgrade. If anything I'd like to get high end CPU/mobo/SSD, the stuff I don't have to take the computer apart to upgrade if I decide too.
