Default Build help,

Hello, names Alex,
Feel like im spamming with all these other "Build Helps" but im confused, sorry.

I've been saving up to purchase build a new Computer,
Budget around 800-1000 USD.
United States Here.
I'm hoping it can play most rpg/strategy games out and releasing within the next year or two on high graphics at least.

I've done some research but am very confused on compatibility between parts/components so i'm asking for a build or help creating a build to suit my gaming wants.

I want a good CPU, GPU, 4+ Gigs of ram and what ever else works with that. Also, good cooling for it, my last computer is over heating, but needs to be replaced either way.

I might have some usable parts in my current over heating computer(the graphics card is over heating) to use, but it is almost 3 years old. I literally need to keep a fan next to it to keep it on.

Older system has Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz, and 3 gigs of ram, not sure how to check brand and what not on rest of stuff without dissembling it, but i will if it helps.

Well,
I dont need monitor, key board, etc,
But most likely will need everything else, including windows 7 64bit.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated, including building a build for me, because i am quite lost,

Thanx.
Alexander.

I'm sure you'll get some build advice as soon as some of our members wake up this morning, they love spending other peoples money.

Until then, here's a link that will help you with your build
