Default For $2,500

Ok what could i build for $2,500. I will need a new mouse keyboard as well as computer. I will want a really good mouse and a decent keyboard. Dont have to be wireless. It would be nice if the monitor is big and a flat screen. The computer has to be fast. I do alot of multi tasking and one thing i found out is i cant run this one p2p program called azureus and any steam game at once casue my whole system lags. I play any source game and alot of battlefield 2. I need to get the best stuff i can for the the max amount of money. My parents are paying for shipping so it can go right to $2,500. And if there are rebates on stuff you can go over $2,500 as long as when you subtract rebates it becomes $2,500 or lower.

Total comes to a whopping $2511.43, and all those prices as you can see were gathered from www.newegg.com

That does not include shipping unfortunately, but as you can see from of the links, some of the products are on offer, and well when you come round to ordering, some of the products I have suggested may have enough savings to include the postage to make it under $2500.

That system will last you a long time by the way
