Hi Wiked, you need to list your budget so people can give you recommendations and where abouts in the world you are so we know where we are shopping. Thanks.

And what size (resolution) screen you want to game on. That will determine which cpu and graphics card is required.

Dell, LG, Samsung and Viewsonic make really good monitors. (Asus monitors are crap!)

Of the top of my head, go to and buy something like the following...

AMD PhenomII x4 955BE
MSI 890FXA-GD70 mobo
4GB DDR3 1600Mhz RAM
OCZ Vertex2 SSD 32GB (for OS)
500GB to 1TB Hard Drive
ATI Radeon 5850 1GB GDDR5 graphics card
CD/DVD Burner by Lite On
Any Midtower case by Antec, InWin
Any 550watt or more PSU (I personally don't care prefer any PSU brands)

That is any easy build for way under 600 euros.
