woops! sorry haha.
well I made this list:
PROCESSOR: Intel Core i3 2130 3.40Ghz 3MB Cache LGA1155 CPU
MOTHERBOARD: ASRock Z68 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 4x DDR3 2133 (OC)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3
HARD DRIVE: Western Digital 1TB Green 64MB SATAII WD10EURS AV-GP
GRAPHICS CARD : Gainward GTX570 Phantom 1280M DDR5 2DVI HDMI
MONITOR: Asus VS228N 21.5",5ms,1920x1080,50M:1,DSUB/DVI-D/BLK
CASE: Antec Nine Hundred Two Ver3.0 Black Gaming Case
POWER SUPPLY: Thermaltake Litepower 500W ATX PSU

hope you can read that....this specific build comes down to 1256 according to that site - if you REALLY want it under 1200 change the GTX 570 with the GTX 560ti 1 GB and that will get you down to I think it was 1112 give or take 50 bucks
May 9, 2012 3:57:39 AM

1135 to be exact with
Gainward GTX560Ti Phantom 1G GTX560Ti Phantom 1G V/2D/H.1024 MB 256 bit GDDR5 Phantom HDMI 2xDVI VG

damn....I forgot windows.......I think you'll have to go twith GTX 560Ti so you can add windows for 100 to make it 1235...slightly over your budget :/

May 9, 2012 5:38:33 AM
