I am looking to spend at max 1500 on a new gaming comp. I have currently picked out a setup from cyberpower inc that includes the following:

NEW!!! CoolerMaster Cosmos Silent Gaming Tower Case w/ 420 Watts Power Supply (Original Color)
CPU: (Quad-Core)Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Q9450 @ 2.66GHz 1333FSB 12MB L2 Cache 64-bit
MOTHERBOARD: (QX9650 Support) Asus P5N-D nForce 750i SLI Chipset LGA775 FSB1333 DDR2 Mainboard
MEMORY: (Req.DDR2 MainBoard)4GB (4x1GB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory (Corsair or Major Brand)
VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX260 896MB 16X PCI Express (EVGA Powered by NVIDIA)
HARD DRIVE: Single Hard Drive (320GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD)
Optical Drive: (Special Price) LG 20X DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW DRIVE DUAL LAYER (BLACK COLOR)
Optical Drive 2: 16X DVD ROM (BLACK COLOR)
SOUND: 3D WAVE ON-BOARD 5.1 SOUND CARD
Power supply: 600w coolermaster
OS: 64 bit home premium

no monitor or keyboard required.

Can anyone post a system with newegg compents for under 1500 with delivery that will beat this setup?

Mostly into RTS, FPS and Age of Conan.

Thanks if anyone takes the time to help!

dont get the the 750i mobo. i have only heard bad about the 50 series( ie 650,750) my suggestion would be ditch the 260gtx( overpriced and you could get the same performance or better with two 8800gts 512mb cards for about the same price maybe a little more and right now i would not even suggest getting an nvidia card. i would wait till the ati cards come out. they will be a LOT cheaper and should get closed to the same performance. http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Radeon-4850-4870,5667.... ) and save the money. thats good a memory speed.
