Looking to buy everything ASAP today - so looking for 3-4 different ideas on a build from the experts!

=

I am looking to put together a gaming desktop... the system will be used for 99% Counterstrike 1.6

I do take my gameplay very seriously and sometimes go for stretches of 100+ per week for months on end.....so I need a system that will play the game flawlessly...

I need to achieve 100fps at all times

I am looking for something with an Intel I5 and something that would work well with the ASUS VG248QE gaming monitor.

Parts not required in build cost: keyboard, mouse, monitor, or speakers

Budget range around $800, give or take with OS.

I am in the USA, Thanks!

I grudgingly came up with this build for you since I am a AMD advocate. It is not perfect but I hope it gives you some ideas.

Would 430 W power supply be more then enough for this set up?

Can I get a few more build ideas?

Thanks!
