Resolution: any 16:9's the higher the better but 1920x1080 is fine
Games / Settings Desired: Would like to play most games at or near highest settings. My flavour of game covers all genres.
Any other intensive software or special things you do (Frequent video encoding, 3D modeling, etc): Would like to get into recording and video uploading to youtube, but it's not a priority.
Parts that can be reused: None.
Do you need an OS? Yes, Windows 7 please.
Do you need peripherals (e.g. monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc)? Monitor, keyboard are needed. I have a mouse and headset already.
I hope this helps you computer gurus out, thanks for your time and help.
