Need help building a gaming PC under $2000

Currently I have a crap computer that can't really play any online games without lagging. So, I am looking to build a gaming PC. The one problem is that I know nothing about building a PC or the parts required and such, so I need help from the community. :) 

My budget is anywhere from $1500-$2000. I want it to be at $1500 minimum, and try to keep it at that range. This cost may or may not include the monitor - depends on how great the monitor actually is (Would like to try to include it in the price range though). It does NOT include keyboard/mouse/speakers. I play all sorta of games: anything from WoW to Guild Wars to CoD etc. I want something that will last me a while, with a great graphics card, and keep the lag away; I'm totally sick of it.

Thanks in advance for your help

Forgot to add that I will be using Window's 7 and that is not included in my budget. I already have a copy of it.

final price after rebates is 1500.09$, so im still in budget :lol:  basically, since you have 500$ left, you can get a monitor, like this:

aswell as get 8 gigs of ram, and double you ssd capacity. with going over just a bit, you can get a 5970 instead. well theres my suggestions :)

you could possibly get an i7 build, but it will be more expensive, and IMO, the 1090T is better than the i7 930.
