Hi everybody I've been saving up for a new tower for quite awhile now and I think this is what I need gaming wise but I'm not entirely sure.

Ticket Number: 665879

I would like to stay within the two thousand dollar range if at all possible.

I plan on using this mainly for gaming but with Itunes and some web surfing but that's about it.  Later on I want to buy a second graphics card and switch out the power supply for SLI but that will be a couple months from now.

As for the monitor I'm looking around for a new one right now.

Not sure of your monitor size or resolution you plan on buying.  The single gpu is good for high settings on 1920x1050 and the added gpu for maxing things out.

Awesome man that's what I'm looking for, I went with the extreme mostly cause I wasn't sure which mother board would be best for SLI down the road.  Oh and you wouldn't happen to know of any good monitors by chance would you?

Check out the Dell UltraSharps, like the U2312HM.  We usually recommend them for their color, viewing, etc.  Wait for a sale if ya can.  Dell has good sales pretty regular.
 
I don't know all the ins and outs of all the mobo's, but the Extreme, I think, is for those wanting tri-sli, 3x gpu's,.

Hi Docsodacan,

The build that bprat22 gave you is a great build.

Amazon has the Dell 2312HM Mon on sale right now for a good price.

I also see that the LG IPS monitor is on sale for a great price on Newegg. Dell uses the LG screen for their IPS monitors. I have never seen this monitor and don't know anything about it. It has good reviews on Amazon.
