I'm tired of this crappy P4 and I want to play MW2, and I can spend 800$.
From what I heard a 9800GT can run MW2 on high.
So this should be enough:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1688...
Unfortunately, CyberPower has the worst reviews ever, this one doesn't help with no reviews.
So I don't know to go for it or not.
Any pc suggestions?
I would assemble it myself as I love doing so, but now I need a pre-assembled one, I want it ready to go.

To help you narrow down your searches:

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: I have at least 2 months I guess.

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, graphic designing, internet browsing.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I need everything, I'm starting fresh out of this old hardware.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.ca

PARTS PREFERENCES: the best "bang for the buck".

OVERCLOCKING: No

CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080 , something good looking for a wide screen.

That's a good build, but I'd save a little with a few changes.

CPU/Mobo: X3 440 and Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 $23 cheaper with shipping.
Case/PSU: Antec 900 and Earthwatts 650W $10 cheaper with shipping. Or an even cheaper case: Coolermaster Elite $25 cheaper with shipping.
HDD: Possibly drop to the 500 GB model to save another $23.

With all of that, you could then step up from the HD 4850 to the HD 5770, which would be quite a bit more powerful, and a lot more future proof.

Even if I asked for a pre-built suggestion, I'm going for that build.
Thank you for you answer, I don't think another one could beat yours.

Not a problem... Neither MadAdmiral or me need anymore "best answers" to get badges, since we have achieved Gold Status. It is just a points thing now (still a nice jester though :)  ) If you really want it changed, you can PM a Moderator to change it. Again, not really an issue on which one of us got the "best answer" :D
