New Build

This build would cost me $800, but I'm willing to spend $1,000 on the desktop. I have decided to get a new desktop and get rid of my xbox 360. I will be playing all my games like BF3 and Crysis 2 games that require a lot.

First just to see what you think of this monitor

BenQ RL2450HT 24" LED LCD Monitor $199.99

Ok now the desktop:

DVD: LITE-ON Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive $19.99

Also I found that the AMD CPU had a bad stock cooling so
CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 $29.99

I plan on being able to use this system for years and be able to upgrade. I figured that in the long run this would be worth it, because I can play the same games as on my xbox 360 and still use my controller of pc games.

Thanks for any input!
