This list needs some update action in general, Weiman, you going to be free by Friday so I can send you some specs to look over?
And like that, he was gone.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

Updated all builds, fixed prices, parts that were not longer available etc.

edit: merged the Ultra Tier SLI and Crossfire as they're essentially the same except for the graphics cards. Yay for the X58 chipset. NAy for SLI certification which seems to cost an additional $60 or something.
Also, added the Hobo tier build icon_razz.gif

Forgive the bias..but you're asian and from Toronto, you MUST have a relative or friend that works with computers and can build one for you right? icon_razz.gif

That said, at that price range you definetly get the best bang/buck by building it yourself. You can have a store do it for you, but their wages will mess your budget up.

Thanks weiman, sorry it took so long to respond. Yeah, I know someone who can build one, but I feel guilty to ask because they built it for me last time. And it would be a good learning experience for me if I built it myself.

Do you have any suggestions for what parts, case, periferals, etc. that I should buy with my budget?

Get the hobotier. Razer Deathadder if your a palm mouser, Diamondback if your claw, post in the Audio thread for headphones. Any generic wired keyboard will do you fine.
