Im looking to build a good gaming computer that will play BF2 - FEAR - Doom 3 - CS - CS SOURCE.

As long as it runs those games and is in this price range.

First of all, where are you located, and are you willing to buy online, or does the computer have to be retail.

And are you willing to build a system? It will cost much less, but you have to put it together.

Would you need the other basics as well?? keyboard, mouse, speakers, OS, monitor/LCD, etc... Or are you going to use what you have now? The OS might be the big one if you have a retail machine with it already loaded. If you have the OS disk, then I'll shut up, but...

I am not the one to suggest what part you should or should not get, this video card or that... This size hard drive or that one, etc... Just something to consider if you need to get the basics.
