Do you have any preferences or requirements about the size of the case?
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp certain number of 5.25" bays?
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp certain number of 3.5" bays?
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp side window?
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp 80mm or 120mm fans?

What about noise output??
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp either you want to keep it as silent as possible, or you don't care.

How about preferences for AMD or Intel??
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp I will guess that you will want the new Intel core arcitecture

What about power consumption?
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp does this matter at all to you? The power it consumes, the higher the electric bill, this isn't a large factor many people think of or even consider, but it is worth a glance.

Power consumption wont matter since ill be in a college apartment. I dont really care about noise and I dont have much of a pref as far as hardwear goes. I just want whatever is best for gaming. As far as case goes. I don't really care as long as it is a well designed case for a good price. I don't really want a super pimped out "nerd" case but I dont care too much. I hear AMD is much better for gaming but I have no idea. I was also told Geforce cards are the best.

I came up with something like this. It is right around $2,000. If it goes a little bit over, get a cheaper hard drive or case(even though it looks sick as **** for your new gaming rig, and yes I am one of those nerds that likes cases).

processor

motherboard

memory

hard drive 1
hard drive 2

graphics card

sound card

power supply

case

monitor

Not bad. But, what, no optical drive/burner?

Why not get a 7900GT instead of a 7800?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130281

the total before rebates is between 2000 and 2100 usd. (just so you know)

I figure, a burner is a burner. There isn't too much difference. I've used a bunch of different one's, and they're basically all the same, unless you're buying off-brand cheapies. He can pick that, the keyboard, mouse, etc. They aren't that big of a deal, imo.
