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.
Acer 20" - $94.99
Acer 23" - $139.99
Asus 24" - $179.99

Keyboard - $20 or more

Mouse - $20 or more


Here is a gaming CPU chart.
Intel i5-3570K - $229.99
AMD FX-4100 - $100
AMD Phenom II X4 - $109

This will probably cost you $80 to $130. Pick everything else, then search for motherboard.

8GB of RAM should be just right. Lots of choices. Get 2 x 4GB DDR3 1600. Usually $40-$50
Corsair Vengeance - $44.99
Crucial Ballistix - $44.99
G.Skill Ripjaws - $45.99

Hard drive
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB - $69.99 It is on sale right now.
SSD choices
Crucial, Sandisk, Samsung are some of the best choices.
120-128GB are usually on sale for $80-$100
240-256GB can be found for $160-$200 on sale.

Power supply (PSU)
Rosewill 450w - $69.99
Corsair 430w - $20 after mail in rebate.

Here are a few inexpensive ones that I might consider buying.
Antec 300 - $54.99 + $2.99 shipping.
NZXT - $39.99 + $7.99 shipping.
Rosewill - $49.99

Video Card (GPU)
Take a look at Nvidia GTX 560 or AMD 7770 - usually around $130 on sale. You can get cards for under $100 as well.

DVD drive
Find something cheap with good reviews. Usually under $20
LG - $17.99 + $4.99 shipping. You should be able to find something with free shipping. Not a lot of free shipping right now.
Asus - $19.99 +$4.99 shipping.

Total = $620

I picked cheapest stuff for the total.
