Dual monitor 1500 "gaming" rig

what's going on guys <3 the community as well as the site (nice september update hawt)


looking for a do everything computer that focuses on dual monitor output (for poker mainly as well as movies, productivity, gaming, etc but i plan on gaming on a single 24 inch monitor). i'm not a HUGE gamer but i do plan on playing games such as sc2, d3, ect. obviously if u can keep the price down that'd be great but i'd be willing to spend up to 1500.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE & BUDGET:
anytime this year~

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:
poker + gaming (i think just moderate gamer), movies, email/spread sheets/word etc.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED:
i have keyboard & mouse, but i'd like opinions on lcds as well. these lcds should not factor into the price ceiling of 1500 (ie don't include as cost of rig)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS:
no preference but newegg seems to be the consensus for all the best deals ( i also live in US)

PARTS PREFERENCES:
just give me bang for buck~

OVERCLOCKING:
as long as it's mild and there's a how-to article here (which i'm sure there is) i'm capable i don't mind multi gpu's either

MONITOR RESOLUTION:
not to familiar with monitor resolutions of a 24 inch monitor (i imagine 1980x 1080)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:
quiet pc would be nice, decent bling would be a +


thank's in advance you guys are the best ~
