$1300 gaming pc

Hello
Approximate Purchase Date: April-June 2011
Budget Range: $1300 After Rebates


System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, surfing the web.

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, speakers and surge protector.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg or Amazon

Country of Origin: US

Parts Preferences: Intel I 2500k looks good, gtx 570, any 22-24 monitor that looks good.

Overclocking: Maybe, I have zero experience


SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, I have no clue if I should do this


Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I would like a quiet PC with good airflow. And being able to play current games smoothly like: stracraft 2, crysis, crysis 2, Bad company 2, black ops and future games like battlefield 3, also I want this pc to last me at least 2 years without upgrading.

Thank you for your time.
