My guest build

CPU - Intel Core i5 650

http://canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=4_65&item_id=027580

CASE - Any case has good airflow cooler with glowing lights

HDD - 1.5TB

PSU - unkown

RAM - 4GB or 6GB

OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (I have the disc)

MOBO - Asus P7P55D-E http://canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=26_583&item_id=028916

ODD - Anything can burn, write & read Blu ray disc, DVD & CD & can watch Blu ray movies/videos

GPU - Evga Geforce GTX 460 1GB http://canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=43_557_559&item_id=032936

I perfer Nvidia because it has Purevideo HD, Physx and CUDA. I want to play World of Warcraft Cataclysm, Guild Wars 2, Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, Call of Duty 4, World at War, Modern Warfare 2 & Black Ops, Need for Speed Shift & Hot Pursuit, Mafia 2, Grand Theft Auto 4 & Episodes from Liberty City, Blur, Fear 2 & Battlefield Bad Company 2 running very smoothly on ultra max settings with max AA/CSAA, AF, Refresh Rate, Foreground FPS, Background FPS, UI Scale, resolution 1920x1080 or 1920x1200, Advanced DOF, Advanced PhysX, CUDA, DirectX, Tessellation, everything except VSync & ultra max sound quality too without any problems/issues. Maybe in the next 3 years I'll upgrade my build to run all Enthusiast High-end games & most intense graphics games on ultra max settings and sound quality too. I want my built to last 5 years or longer.
