  1. I didn't see SSD's on fry's web site. I recommend either a Samsung 470 series 64GB or 128GB or a newer Crucial M4 64GB or 128GB as your budget can hold.

    I didn't pick out a Keyboard or mouse, you can shop for these there. a basic KB and Mouse $30 or you can get gaming quality ones. its your budget. I picked a good gaming monitor (fully adjustable), but look around at fry's and see what on sale. the spec you want to look at is the response time it should be no more that 5ms (grey to grey) for gaming. for the Optical (DVD) drive I put in a place holder, just see whats on sale any 19-$25 (asus, LG, Samsung,HP) drive will be good. for the HDD again I picked a solid one, but look to see whats on sale. get at least a 500gb one that has 32mb of Cache and runs at 7200RM. if its a Western Digital HD get the 'Black" edition these are the faster drives. I picked a good gaming case that has 4 fans and a built in fan controller (looks cool too). The GPU will game well for some time to come without breaking the bank. I went with an Intel Sandybridge CPU as they are the best gaming CPU out right now and it was in your budget. Ram was decently priced so I loaded you up with 8GB even though 4GB would do.

    BTW: you could save loads of money ordering via newegg and amazon, but fry's is instant gratification :D
