Here is a list that I put together for you to get you started. Everyone else feel free to weight in on the parts chosen I won't take offense.

Monitor: 179$

CPU Phenom II x6 229$

Memory 2x2Gb G.skill Ripjaws 69.99$

PSU: Corsair 650W 89$

VGA: Gigabyte 5870 1Gb 299$

HDD: 1 Tb seagate baracuda FREE as combo deal with Above video card.

M/B: Asus 790X atx 98.99$

Case: Thermaltake v3 44.99

This all adds up to 1023.94$ You can easily save money by switching to a quad core, a 21" monitor and cheaper board.

X6 is not require for gaming
Go For Phenom 2 955

Go for 6950

Thank's guys, thats helpful. But also should I wait for Bulldozer or Sandy Bridge so the prices would go down?

I would think they would go down but I can't say they go down the same day they are released. I ususaly noticed the price change about 2 months after release. Does anybody here really know when the prices drop due to a new product release?
