I'm pretty new to the computer scene, and am not sure which components to use for a reasonable gaming PC to run newer games like Battlefield, World of Tanks and the to be released Watchdogs at medium or higher. I would much rather have an Intel based system, despite the higher costs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help guys. I still have a few weeks until I finally order my PC, but I'm definitely going to look further into the build that Ahmadjon suggested.
Thanks again.
