Hello Everyone,

Can you please help me build a $1500 gaming rig in time for the Thanksgiving sale? I'm going to use the rig primarily for gaming and multimedia.

I need a monitor and speakers as well. My personal preference is for Intel, but beyond that, please suggest a compatible system that'll rock the socks off of all new games.

Thanks in advance for all the replies.
