New Gaming Build for around $1500

Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: $1200 - $1500

System Usage: Gaming, Mainly playing SC2 atm, but pretty much an ex MMO junkie, but I do also play games like Crysis as well. Second would be to watch HD movies, and last would be work related, web design etc...

Parts Not Required: (keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, however I am from Australia and will most likely be comparing prices with http://www.staticice.com.au/ (I do note that the Aussie dollar is doing quite well lately so may look at purchasing from overseas, will be open to any other suggestions as to where I can get the best bargains from)

Country of Origin: Australia

Parts Preferences: None really

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Not in it for the bling, I just want something that runs smoothly and quietly if possible. I would like to be able to play most games on the market on the highest settings or close to it. Would be awesome if I could get a horizontal case to fit everything in so I can place it next to amp. If not then I'm not too bothered. Thanks in advance. It's been awhile since I looked up components so I pretty outdated.
