Well it would be nice to tell us your budget..

counter strike is such a rubbish game ever made, and you people like it too much why?
Without knowing your budget I would go with the phenom II 980.

I just threw a build together for someone real quickish. He was asking me what he can get for around $500. He mentioned he needed a monitor, KB, and mouse so I told him to get more money :p  Again, knowing your budget is very important. The only thing not included was the Windows OS. Everything else including the monitor came to about $620. This was a few days ago, so sorry if some of the prices don't match up anymore. Any components you don't need?

Monitor - How big do you want to go? $100-$150 or more.
