Need help building gaming computer

I want to build a new gaming computer. I'm using a site called cyberpowerpc.com. If anyone could help me with a nice setup for around $2800 that would be awesome. I just want the best preformance I can get for my money on games such as SWTOR and SC2

  2. Thats what you can get for $2800, but that is total overkill for Star wars and Starcraft. do you want to lower your budget?
  3. Nice system build he put up there, but you could run your games very well for around 600 bucks. (Assuming you have a suitable case and power supply)

    Back up your OS from the old HDD on DVD, then set it up as a RAID system with SRT enabled, you won't need more than 40Gig on an SSD to run just about anything at lightning speed. If you insist on spending more money, use it to pay for a T1 internet connection and a ticket to Blizzcon!
