Want to build a PC the budget is $1500

My entire life I have always had a shitty computer and frankly I'm sick of it, I could never play the newest games and the games I could play have always had to be on min settings or else i get like 5 fps. And only having a moderate understanding of computer components was wondering if you guys could help me design one.

So now as a result I am making a new PC for $1500 sadly I know it will not be amazing since a good portion of the $1500 budget will be taken up by the monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Do not worry about a sound system I really do not care about that facet of gaming much.

So to recap I have $1500 dollars and I need everything including monitor, keyboard, mouse, tower, GPU, motherboard, Ext.

Whatever help is given will be much appreciated. Thank You

    This section needs to be renamed and moved IMHO.
  6. mrdowntownkiller submitted best and only PC rig on this thread so he logically gets the best answer ribbon. lol :D

    Overall i like it. I think i'm just going to adjust it a little, changing a few superficial thing like the keyboard and monitor.

    And dirtyferret thanks for the advice i will definitely check out some of those forum threads.
