Before you read, thanks in advance for your input and suggestions.
So I am buying a computer for gaming, and I have been changing some things, got my parts all picked out and whatever. But I wanted to try something, I need all of you computer pros out there to get me, the VERY BEST possible build you can EVER get for gaming. For $450. I'd be willing to stretch to $500ish maybe, but thats really pushing it.
I already have my build I am going to buy soon. But what I have RIGHT now, is $450, my other build is sweet (if I do say so myself) and it will cost me $710ish. But I want to see what the best possible build out there is, for $450.

TAKE NOTE!!!! My monitor is a 720p TV, which means I could max any game with a lower-midrange card. (Just sayin.)

Approximate Purchase Date: Right now... :p 

Budget Range: $450, like I said before >.>

System Usage from Most to Least Important: GAMING, GAMING, Netflix/Hulu, internet, etc. Wait did I say GAMING????

Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard, mouse. TAKE NOTE AS I SAID BEFORE! My monitor is a 720p TV, which means I could max any game with a lower-midrange card.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: , unless the prices somewhere else are cheaper.

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: Number 1 most important, XFX CARD! Unless another card is CONSIDERABLY better, an XFX card has a lifetime warranty, nuff said. ATLEAST 8gb 1333 memory. Preferably a GOOD brand like G.Skill.

Overclocking: I don't like pushing my hardware (very far, atleast) past its set limit, and I don't know how to do it. So, maybe....

SLI or Crossfire: Probably not, but maybeh >.>

Monitor Resolution: 720p, I don't know the rest :p 

Additional Comments: Best possible computer, $450, nuff said.

First one to get the build gets an imaginary cookie! ready, set, GO! Just kidding don't rush it too much, take your time, I can wait :p 

Thanks in advance! :D
