WIth the plethora of 24" monitors available capable of 1920x1080 at $200 or less, that would be the next logical step....

Once at that resolution, the video card is fuly 75-80% of your performance equation.

Recommend at least a GTX460/560(when 560 released soon), or perhaps a 6950....

6950 and the 560 aren't going to be on equal if I'm correct, but the 560 should be on equal with the 6870 but here in Canada that's expensive so that why im going for 6850 or 460 so i can play games at a good frames, i only play games such a league of legends, Dragon saga, and if fast enough runes of magic on Max setting for all of them

oh still open for site suggestions

and need computer specs still

The GTX 560 is said to be out on 25th. I'm waiting for it & replacing my 460. I think the price maybe around $300 US initially. I would prefer $250 since the 460s are under $200 mark.

You need to pick out an atx tower case.

Mobo has sata 6gbps & usb 3.0 so you're a bit future-proofed. Not the latest 890 chipset, but your budget is too low. $1200+ is about the minimum for cf/sli.

still out of my budget, it would still cost 100$ for the OS ( im not a student), im running on a 600 - 800$ budget and playing to too graphic intensive games ( i don't play anything near to Fps (first person shooter games online) so it should be that hard to get a quad core + Decent Graphics card + 870/770 with 4 gb memory

i need a Good build to play Games on best setting and getting good frames ( i said all the games before so)

900$ at most plus the OS please
