BUDGET RANGE: $1100 max but dont need/want to spend that much.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming running multiple programs (itunes,photoshop,limewire,internet,WoW)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Everything is required this is going to be a complete build.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg

PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference

OVERCLOCKING: No

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe for a future upgrade.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Not really sure currently use 1280x1024 on my 19inch. would like a widescreen hd monitor if over price range hd not needed.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Currently using a dell xps 400 and im planning on giving it to my bro so i can get a better comp for WoW mainly and running multiple programs at once. Trying to get a great gaming build for 850 total including monitor and os etc. but can go up to 1100 max.

Shortstuffs build is right on the money for bang for buck. All the components are quality , and all you'd need to do is add a keyboard/mouse combo + speakers and you have a great system .

I would sub in the following , but this is just personal choice

Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD $180
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and swap the 4870 gfx card for

MSI R4890-T2D1G OC Radeon HD 4890 1GB $180 [ after rebate]
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The price remains the same , but you give up a little bit of screen size for a better faster gfx card .
