Hello i am interested in building a new gaming pc

i want a comp with the standard to play games like call of duty 4 i also want a very fast computer and i have the budget of $900 it might not seem very specific but if anyone could give me some recommended combinations of the mobo, cpu, ram,graphics card that is good for gaming using a 22" monitor because i really have no idea what to get amd or intel cpu, nvidia or ati graphics card and i've also heard some great reviews about xfx boards so some opinions would be greatly appreciated

Newegg won't ship to Australia.

If you download Vista you break the law. You also risk getting spyware that will send info about your bank accounts or credit card numbers or e-mail passwords to whoever made it.

That's a good price. I got a pair of WD 750GB disks myself and they're very good.
