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.

anyway, if you decide to buy before that releases (horrid idea) here we go:

i5 760 -$205

ASUS p7p55d-e Pro - $180

Gigabyte GTX 470 Super Overclocked - $300

XFX Black Edition 750W - $130

Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB - $55 (right now wow, $15 off from normal)

CM 690II Advanced - $80

Hyper 212+ - $30

ASUS MS246H Glossy Black / White 23.6" 2ms(GTG) - $180

W7 Home edition OEM - $100

G.Skill Ripjaw 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 C9 - $135

DVD burner/reader - $20

total= $1415 before MIR, and theres allot of MIR's..

I left $ for speakers as well, I use headsets so I can't recommend any speakers.
