If you are looking for a gaming PC, then the i7 is not a viable choice...
It is overall an incredible CPU...but for gaming, doesnt offer much significant performance improvement over the Q9550 or the AMD X4 955 CPUs...
So you can save some cash in the Mobo + CPU + RAM department and invest in the graphics as the games rely more on them...
If you are OK with the above, then you can build a gaming PC for less than $1k, that can max out the current games @ the resolutions that you are planning...
Samsung LCD - 1080p
19" - Max 1680X1050
