I'm looking for some solid advice in terms of which hardware to pick out for my gaming system that I plan to purchase in the near future. My tech level is next to none however, I am trying to pick it up as I go along.

As the subject suggests I have a monitor, mouse, and keyboard I just need help selecting what I'll need for the tower alone. My plan in terms of hard drive space is to run a SSD (for operating system and a couple games so maybe 120g max) along with my HDD.

Thanks!

Any advice is surely welcome!
