Gaming PC Mainly for Rift

Last response: in Systems

Approximate Purchase Date: Next weekish

Budget Range: 1300-1500 (1500 before rebates)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (I'd like to try Rift...I might end up playing it quite a bit, as well as playing some older games such as morrowind, WoW and such), watching videos, word processing

Parts Not Required: Everything except I think I might be able to use my HDTV as a monitor. Do I need a DVI converter for this?

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Country of Origin: United States

Parts Preferences: I have no real preference here.

Overclocking: Maybe. I don't really understand it enough yet, as I'm very new to all this, but if I can figure out how to do it, I might try it.

SLI or Crossfire: Whichever you guys think.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: I'm very new to building computers and I'd like something that can at least play 95% of what's out there right now. I'd like to be able to max out the settings on Rift. I'd also like to max them on WoW, but I'm assuming that won't be a problem if I can max on Rift. If 1500 is not an adequate amount of money to do this, please let me know. From what I've read, it seems like it shouldn't be a problem in the least...

Thanks so much for your help!

Yeah 1500 dollar budget is plenty to play most games nowadays,a and rift doesn't have the highest hardware requirements.

I would suggest getting an intel i5 2500K processor with minimally a GeForce GTX 460 Graphics card.

Thanks for your reply :) 
Do you think you could detail an exact build with all the parts?
