Approximate Purchase Date: Hopefully within a month

Budget Range: Less than $400 before rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Programming, browsing

Parts Not Required: TV, Mouse, Keyboard, DVD Drive, Speakers, HDD(only if windows can be installed on an external 500gb HDD)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com, TigerDirect.com

Country: United States

Parts Preferences: I would like to stick with a nice (preferably intel) CPU. Graphics must perform well(lag free) under 720p, as I have no plans to upgrade my TV.

Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, just to leave an opening for future upgrades

Monitor Resolution: 1024x768

Additional Comments:
I have finally decided to move on from console gaming, and sell my consoles to save up for a gaming computer. Here are the components I have assembled to purchase: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx... (inform me if it does not work)
I will need to cut off (at least) $100 from it in order to afford it.
GAMES I AM HOPING TO PLAY: Fallout, Skyrim, Minecraft, SWTOR, Modern Warfare 3, ect.
-----
UPDATES:
Downgrade by 6GB of memory for $30 savings (replaced with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)
CURRENT TOTAL: $470/400

Your wish list stands at $500 , and you also need a hard drive
but your budget is $400

Pay way less for a case .

2 x2 gig of ram is plenty for gaming

you also need a power supply

Outlander, the Case has a 500W power supply built in. Also, I have a very old Hitachi SATA that i could use to hold the OS until i gained sufficient funds.
Also, remember, I want performance at 720p, not the 1080p this provides! Anyone have reasonable downgrades that will not affect my 720p performance? Other than the ram decrease.
