A bit over budget, but it's the best I could come up with. The HD 5850 is the best GPU for under $1000. Dang, you still need a keyboard. Pick one up from an overstock store for less than $10. You can downgrade the GPU to HD 5770, but you'll probably upgrade the 5770 to 5850 sometime in the future.

I was looking at some parts this is what I came out with. What do you guys think about it ? :heink:

Looks like a great build, but for another $120 you could upgrade to a 5850. This is a much better card and at your resolution you won't have to worry about upgrading for quite some time.

Best solution

This build gives you a Quad core and the HD 5850 I did not see a power supply on your last build? This case comes with a 600w PSU, (generic of course). For a little over, for a total of $723.92 and it looks like you get two wireless cards for free so you can sell one if you don't need it.
