Hey, this is a quote I built off memoryexpress.com of part's i'll pick up (approximately) over the next 3-6 months (sadly the length of time is that).

But fortunately the pc in my system specs below... is going to change to something better at least ^_^

Here it is.

So, any suggestions, ways to "shave" off the cost, but still be kickass. I'm trying to build it asap, however... I'd like to turn it on in about 2-3 months.... the latest...

Thanks for reviewing!

*Edit*

I use my pc for 2 primary things,

1. PC Performance Precision Perfected Practicum Gaming. (Meh I figured multiple p' words would be funny).

2. Video editing, project sorting, music media center, etc...

*One restriction I temporarily have is no credit card, HOWEVER in 4-6 months, i'll probably be able to get a credit/debit rig for such purposes *

Question, re: Avatar *boredom*. Impressive art, I do want to say wow, but are you an art inclined individual? Impressive avatar still!

You could use EBP with them, I think

I found it in a modern art thread in another forum and really liked it but I know nothing when it comes to art
