Default ...the confussion...

Hi, I'm new to computers and even newer to this forum, I have been reeding up on all the wonders that it has to offer but still find myself very very...very confused. So in order to clear things up for me a bit and satisfy my curiosity. I was wondering what parts you would use to build your own custom super gaming computer if money wasnt a problem. Also what do you think about this?
Pentium 4 660, 3.6 GHz, 800 MHz FSB, Socket LGA775 Boxed Processor with HT Technology

Manufacturer: Intel

Mfg Part #: BX80547PG3600F

Product Number: 319448


is it compatable with the right upgrades for a very good gaming computer? Or is there even something about it that may not be good for a gaming computer?

Also I know that the computer would need the same basic principles but would there be any way to keep it still the best gaming computer it could be while having it at the peak of design softweare?

Thnkx for your time any reply would be greatly appreciated
