Default Building A New Pc

Well its the time for a new pc for me.. a gaming pc .. i want a computer that plays new games smooth and a direct x10 video card or cards.. the os will be vista premium (64-bit) .. maybe a new monitor also but i dont really really need it right now, and the budget for me is $1,000 .. could go a little over budget but not a lot..
if you can, list the specs and the parts i will need to build dis pc.

The system b1gapl suggested would be the best bang for buck right now. If you want an AMD build then you should go for an AM2+ cpu, motherboard as they are AMD's newest releases.

Why do you want AMD?
Why do you want vista?
What would be your main purpose for the machine?

The 64bit version allows you to add more ram 32bit OS's can only accept 3-3.5gb whilst 64 bit can accept upto 120gb

No problem. Here's the revised list:

Case - Antec 900 (From zipzoomfly.com) or Your choice...
Motherboard - Foxconn C51XEM2AA
CPU - AMD Athlon X2 4000+ 2.1GHz
RAM - 2 x 1GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800
Graphics - EVGA 8800GTS 320MB
Power Supply - Corsair 520HX 520w (From buy.com)
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB
Optical Drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner
Optional Aftermarket HSF - Tuniq 120
OS - Vista Home Premium 32-bit OEM

I chose the X2 4000+ for you, because in a few months, AMD will release their new processors. So you can upgrade either to a Phenom X2 or X4. X2 being dual and X4 being a quad core processor.

I also included the OS, you should be picking.

as I said originally the intel is the faste3st atm but if you don't mind gambling then go with an AM2+ system which is having the new processors over the next couple of months.
