Ok so I see, this question is asked SO OFTEN, there really perhaps should be a sticky or something.

The only game there that is high on the computer, is BF2. Get something around 6800GT (Video Card) and 1GB - 2GB of RAM. Really doesn't matter, motherboard...etc..etc... doesn't matter.

Wooooo! ya now we talking

What do you need?
Case

RAM
Mobo
CPU
Harddrivers
Optical drivers

I would consult Pzero he likes making computers and really seems like he has the time to. Let me tell you, you won't be dissapointed in this computer we will build for you.

Now My job I reccomend this power supply.

That will power it nicly.
