I'll put a build for you together later today, but you really only need 4gigs of RAM for gaming, it's proven anything greater than that doesn't do anything for gaming performance. Good choice of processor, but the graphics card I'd recommend the 6850, but it might not fit in the budget... we'll see. In the mean time, I'm sure someone else will have a recommendation.

I agree in part with what you say about RAM, but the cost increase between 4GB and 8GB is marginal and ensures your system is future-proofed in that area. Upgrading later could present problems with finding sticks with identical timings and voltages.

Meh, true, true. Plus memory is really cheap right now.

yeah, go for 8GB its less then twice as much which isnt even a lot, also in that build posted above the case is linked to the PSU, need to find him a case also

and do you need to overclock? an i3 2100 is a great CPU for gaming and will work very well for what you need it for and will fit much nicer in your budget allowing for that 6850 and an SSD for a really fast system

oops, I meant to link him to the CHALLENGER.

great termhn :o :)  ... But i3 ? I wanted to make it future proof ... Ok if budget is problem lemme strech it or umm can't i buy GPU later after 3/4 months ? Please suggest me a good MB from Gigabyte (i heard that dualbios is very usefull :p  ) and 450w PSU enough for me ? also tell me about intels Dz68DB MB :) 
and OS my frnd has got a Win7 Dvd :D 

thank you very much guys you are realy Quick :) 
i'll upgrade my pc with HD 6870 GPU later :)

I would be hesitant on a 450W PSU... I'd go to 550. The z68 architecture allows you to crossfire or SLI and overclock on the same MB.
