I want a gaming rig that can run Everquest 2, Arma II, and Arma III, Crysis, crysis 2, Skyrim, Battlefield 3 on the highest settings possible and resolution with excellent framerates. However I still need to get myself a cheap enough laptop for school. But I really want to have an excellent gaming rig with keyboard and mouse being wired usb.

As a student I would suggest just getting a better laptop that can do school work and game. The last thing you want is to be supporting 2 money sucking computers while trying to concentrate on studies... but then again a laptop is more likely to walk off

Yeah. But for a gaming laptop, it costs 1500 bucks for an expensive, underpowered gaming laptop machine.

I want to get a desktop, and then factor in a laptop for school.

So. Bring on the Intel and Nvidia labled Specs!

BF3 on ultra settings at the highest resolution takes about $700 worth of GPU alone (two 570's) and you're not going to fit that in an $1100 budget..

If you have your sights set on 2560x1600, you probably want an SLI-based configuration. Even the GeForce GTX 590 gets beat up pretty badly at that resolution.[\quote]

You can manage an $1100 build with a single 570 and play BF3 at 1920 at high settings, which is still a good experience. If you need to put a mouse/keyboard and operating system on that budget, though, a 570 might be out of range.

I plan on playing all my games at 1080. I'm not going for an SLI setup. I want the best settigns possible within the 1100 dollar range. Of course I need all the other parts to make it happen.

Not at all, decent gaming can be had on a Clevo P150HM w/a 560M starting at about $950

providing "all the parts" .... half way decent ones anyway .....monitor, KB, Mouse, speakers, OS, etc will get ya "box" down to the $700-800 range
