Why does everyone freak out when someone doesn't have a 680 after a $2000 budget. Some of us like to put that money other places you know, into the aesthetics of the build. We are not all "OMG i needz best performance nao" kind of people. I can say for one my build was $2250 but I only put a 670 in there with a 24" monitor. I put a decent amount into the WC aesthetics of the build and making my color scheme work because that mattered to me.

this. to each his own.

+ I am not going to be able to build it myself, my dad doesn't wanna go through all the hassle. I'd rather just have someone build it for me.
Edit : I will be using it for HD Video Editing, 3D Modeling, Gaming, Movies & Music, Facebook and everything else.

For a 13 year old.. I dont think you can balance all of those + School properly.. rolleyes.gif

well with any build OCN helps you put together I can guarantee people will be jealous. With your budget you will have a PC that can handle most things we will throw at it for years to come before you need an upgrade. My question to you is can we only use NCIX? idk a lot about companies outside the US since that is where I live and I only really look around here for prices but I can go through a few canadian sites and see what we can whip up since it is known that it has to be a prebuild system.

edit @gerickjohn - oh no it can be done, I did the same thing my freshman and sophomore year when Halo 2 was out. Ran a few forums, made montages, whipped up sigs in PS, and slept about 4-5 hours tops lol. You get use to it... but I will say this to all high schoolers. After graduating and growing up a bit, I really regret not putting 110% into school back then. I may have finished with a 3.4 but I know I could have done better, pulled 4s or 5s on my AP tests and really saved myself an assload of work in college. just my 2 cents to todays youth

Actually I am fine using an American company, But shipping must be under $200.
I checked out CyberPowerPC.com and iBUYPOWER.com and they both seem to be reasonably cheaper, except they don't have as much options and customization as NCIX and many people on OCN told me not to go for them. If you can find another website then i'll be glad to use it biggrin.gif

Nice inclusion of 1440p. I would upgrade the SSD to 128 and looks good.

Why not? A monitor is a core component of your computer. If you have a crappy monitor, it doesn't really matter what you put in the tower, since you only have so many pixels to push anyway. Though I'd like to reiterate for like the 15th time in this thread: CANADA.
