Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next month or two

Budget Range: 1,500-1,800 Before Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing internet, Videos

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, Amazon.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Whatever you suggest? I don't know much about the best brands since this is the first build i'm trying to get.

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe?

Monitor Resolution: Whatever would go with a 23/24inch monitor? I don't know witch one i'm getting.

Additional Comments:

So basically what i need is someone to make me a build for a Gaming computer that would run most games in the highest settings without little problem with a budget of about 1,800 including a screen in that budget.

I know it is a lot to ask for but i don't know much about the parts that go into it and i would really appreciate someone coming up with a build and list of parts i could get instead of me researching for months.

Also if someone could suggest a rather not expensive gaming monitor i would really appreciate it.

Thanks! :)

If you want to save some money, get a cheaper case (Cooler Master HAF 912 is 70$ @ Newegg), and maybe a cheaper CPU cooler (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO). This will save you some money, + it will not perform any worse (yes, the CPU will get a little bit hotter, but the Hyper 212 handles overclocked CPUs just fine).

UPDATE:
Also, that HDD is only SATA II (3Gbps). Get a SATA III drive (6Gbps) like this Seagate Barracuda
