redface.gif with a 1,200 budget you can build a similar rig like mine, except for the 3 monitors. Those alone were almost $900 :x

Theres no point pricing a rig now if you are not getting it till november. The price of just about everything will have changed by then. Youll get a much stronger card in November than you would today for the same amount of money, and processor as well.

Also, the price increase of a SB rig is way overexagerated. You don't need a $270 board. A mid range board will do just fine.

Everyone and their mom will recommend Corsair/Seasonic, but contrary to popular belief there exist other PSUs that are also very good and much cheaper. Look at the Rosewill Green line, Antec Earthwatts, NeoEco, or almost any other Antec line, and many others. Check out the recommended PSU thread.

almost everything i mentioned will still be relevant, and i provided a gen3 board that's ready for ivy, and basically outlined what would be the best in november. you can't say there isn't a point, as he has an idea of what to look for and a general idea of what he should be able to get for his money when the time approaches/comes. the only reason i linked the corsair is because i've built with them and never had a problem, i can also recommend antec, but they don't have a 550w/650w that is fully modular afaik.

OP, really any corsair, antec, thermaltake, rosewill, seasonic, or sometimes silverstone PSU should be good. i would get the best priced modular one when the time comes, at around 500-700w. thumb.gif

Its really hard to say, if you're building in November of this year... i'd say you're probably wasting your time making a list right now. Prices will change, ivy will be out and even ivy-e. New Nvidia Kepler video cards will most definitely be out by then as well. Building a list now so that you can buy in November is akin to trying to predict the weather in 20 years (ok maybe i'm exaggerating a bit).

Also heres a link for windows 7 profession for students (because it sounds to me like you're a student) http://www.microsoftstore.com/store?SiteID=msstore&Action=DisplayProductDetailsPage&productID=216644200 you need an edu email address but you can pick up windows 7 for $65 from the windows site, you can request a backup disc for another $15 usually as well if you don't want to mess with burning it etc and make sure to get the 64 bit version.

What Mad said. In November, Ivy Bridge will be 6 months old already, with price cuts being possible. Both AMD and NVIDIA will have their full line of the newest gen cards (7000 series, 600 series) available (low profile to enthusiast). There is no reason to think about specific parts if you are going to be building in November.

I think the 7850 looks promising, but I'll have to wait for benchmarks to make sure. I don't think windows 8 is significant enough to be a vital upgrade.

Also when all the other cards come out the current cards will drop a bit in price, and a 6970 will play any game(currently, about to get a second) at almost completely maxed settings. only alot of AA or supersampling will kill the framerate.

Edit: seems other ppl beat me to it.
