It depends on the games you want to play and what rez you want to play them at, Do you have any parts ATM ? OS / MOUSE / KB / MONITOR / SPEEKERS ?

For the PC only with a OS for a rez of 1080 your looking at about 700 to 1100 for a gaming rig.

sorry i guess i got ahead of myself there, i only need an OS, I have a 22in 1050p monitor and would try to use it on my 46in 1080p tv. I have a keyboard and mouse, just need the parts and os really.

Are you into OCing ? do you want a option to Xfire or sli down the road or a single GPU setup is ok ?

i don't think i would want to go over 700, mainly RTS and FPS like Empire and crysis (a bit old I know, but a favorite)

single GPU is fine for me as long as it does the job. Seeing as I;ve never OCed before I'm kinda hesitating on saying yes, however I could look into it.

With the CPU at 3,2 you will be fine.
