    Your build should look something like this:

    Case: Your choice
    Processor: i5 2500K if you are overclocking, 2500 if not
    Motherboard: Any P67/Z68 board which is decent and provide the features you need, too many in the market
    Ram: Any reasonable sticks about 1600mhz CL8 or similar, 2x2Gb for cheap solution, 2x4Gb if you have some money to spend. Rams are pretty cheap compared to 1 year ago
    HDD: Reasonably fast 500Gb/1TB of any legit brand, WD will be Blacks, Samsung non-eco etc.
    Graphics card: AMD 6950 or Nvidia 560Ti depending on which one you like GTX570/6970 if you have more money to burn.
    Power supply: This is a bit harder, but generally about 500/600w for 1 graphics card, 700/800w for 2 graphics cards. Decent power supply is a must, Corsair if you don't know what to look for, plenty of other good ones like Silverstone, Antec and Thermaltake.
    Processor cooler: CM212+ for cheaps, you can have Swiftech Polaris for a bit more pricey, plenty of decent ones about. Check Frostytech for this.

    Edit: for $1200 I think you can get a really powerful Sandy Bridge based cpu with plenty of bells and whistles like SSD etc.

    For that kind of money you can build a custom-watercooled Sandy Bridge Beast!

    I agree with the opinions mentioned above. Unless you specify what is the main purpose of your future computer, the configuration proposed by Fourstaff will do just fine.
    Also, buy the parts individually and build them yourself, unless you don't really know how to. If that's the case, it's cheaper to buy all the parts separately and go to a store and have them build them for you, unlike buying and assembly directly at the store. Just say you want it build and nothing more, the operating system and software will be configured by you, because it's not that hard.
    And don't OC until you know what you're doing.

    Fourstaff is right. Forget the Ibuypower and build your own. It's very simple really.

    Do you really want some strangers you don't know handling all of your hardware? Don't you want to be involved in putting something special together? You will enjoy the computer that much more if you build it yourself. You will also learn :)

    if you cant buy item by item in your country. and you can build it by your own you could buy the whole things online or from 1 web store maybe you gonna have discount for it. then build it
    but if you want a simple thing just let them build for you.
    anyway welcome to TPU
     
    THE HELL says thanks.

    How's the weather down there?


    Is it possible to get things shipped from the UAE or something? Surely there must be decent etailers in the neighborhood.

    If you can find one that ships your way, I would definitely recommend buying all the parts at once from one supplier and building it yourself.

    Must be pretty hard to buy parts there, with the demands for computer hardware so low in somewhere like Oman, try buying online from a good UAE shop and ship it here.

    And unfortunately ibuypower doesn't ship to anywhere outside USA and Canada, even if they did the shipping cost WILL be very high (probably the cost of another good PC part).

    thank you,,
    I think the same as you to buying online from UAE, but I dont know any online UAE shop.


    If I buy it from IBUYPOWER my friend will order it from USA and the ship will cost about 120$.
