My budget for the new computer is: ~$1,000-$2,500

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Gaming, storing and listening to music, browsing, Photoshop

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Games, Photoshop

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Graphics intensive games such as Crysis 2

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? I am generally conscientious about which programs I have open and when

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Yes


I'm interested in futureproofing this computer so that I won't have to worry about buying a brand new one for a while.

It would be better if you built your own one because chances are that it would be a lot faster and your budget can suit a very speedy and futureproof system.

LGA1366 will be phased out after LGA2011 comes out. You would be better off using a LGA1155 or wait for the LGA2011 to come out. Also the the graphics card should be more focused on for gaming.
