Default Build me a computer

Requirements: CD and DVD burner, case that is applicable with the mobo and all other parts. I won't be building this myself, so I want to make sure there is enough room for the technician.
2 gigs of ram minimum. LCD screen included. This computer will be for gaming and school, so a decent moniter is crucial (I'll mostly be playing the battlefield series. In fact, that's all I will be playing )


Budget 1,000 - 1,300 (including moniter, operating system, games, keyboard (comfort, I have carpal tunnel), G5 mouses, plantronics headset and all other necessary accessories.


I will not be purchasing additional cables/wires or screws, or any of that sorts of things retail. I want everything bought at newegg.


The goal is to have very reliable parts. If I have to sacrifice performance, that's ok. I really don't want to take things back. I don't have the time, or energy.


Fans are a must - please recommend me the amount of fans I need for the system. I know nothing about those sorts of things.



Here is my current build, it's pretty lame.

Things I want to change/unsure of reliability necessity:

Videocard
Case
PSU
CPU
Pretty much everything


Want to trim budget just a little bit, so I can add in an LCD 19' min. screen (for gaming.)



I also need a printer. Please recommend one...hehe.


Oh, other people have suggested getting the 7950GT 512mb 256 bit videocard. I'll only be playing BF2 and BF2142.


It's cheaper than the 8600 and apparently has better specs (aside from not being direct10 capatible.)


Anyways, I really need help. I'll be ordering the computer and accessories on newegg in two weeks. I will not be upgrading, ever.


I'm also considering getting an extra gig of ram, since the corsair value is only 36 bucks a stick.



I'm going to have PCclub build the computer (unless you guys no a better franchise retailer.)


Thanks for any responses!!
