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:, however I am from Australia and will most likely be comparing prices with (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 It's been awhile since I looked up components so I pretty outdated.
