Hey everyone, I am looking to spend some money I will be coming into here soon on a nice new gaming rig. I'm not biased towards desktops or laptops. I know enough to take a computer apart and put it back together, as well as name the parts. Other than that, this is where I am hoping you can come in.

What I am looking for:
A computer (desktop or laptop) that I can handle pretty much whatever is out there (must include diablo 3), and maybe what's about to come in the next year. Personally, I do not care if my graphics are on MEDIUM/MEDIUM HIGH setting, but I am done playing with LOW.

I am hoping to spend no more than $900 on this machine. I already have my monitor (a 32" Samsung TV) and a Mouse and Keyboard. The rest is up to you.

I have looked all over the internet at this mainstream sites such as falcon, alienware(garbage), etc...

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

i spent £500 on my build thats proberly around $700 so with a few more upgrades ill look around and see what i can find for you i reckon you could go for an intel i7 3770k in there if i look hard enough, however do not get an nvidia card unless your gunna spend $500 on it as your 32 inch monitor will kill it an amd one will do better as they have more stream processors ill post back soon with a suggestion :)  probs an amd 6950 or something :)
