Default Just a though $1k build

Hey guys u remember me right the slimline guy lol.. WEll I was thinking what can u get from a $1k build with monitor OS and everything.. No lag on games and all..

Games wished to be played..
Silk Road like always
Team Fortress 2
Cod 4
and possibly 2 more..

Now can all these be possible to run without lag and not such crap quality but not so great??

Also is it possible to run 7-8 games without lag were talking like fps's mmorpgs's .. its my friend though he get s a new download like every week .. this all I know bout his specs..

250 GB HD
8600 GTS GPU

EDIT - Lol, got bored wanted to post this... well this is truly my DREAM COMPUTER!!

unless you have some serious upgrading planned then that PSU is overkill. Swap it out for something cheaper and spend the extra $$ upgrading the 4870 to a 4890.

BTW, a little grammar goes a long way, I don't really understand what you're blathering about so I'm just assuming you want us to evaluate the build.

That's a pretty good build for a gamer. I would go ahead and buy/build that.

Good Luck.

Looks good.. I wouldn't get that high end of a PSU though unless you plan another HD 4870 in the future, also I wouldn't recommend an Open Box DVD-Drive.. also a note.. Windows 7 will be coming out in a few months, so why not keep using XP until then?

Probably around the same price as Vista (and it will be in the same packages as Vista, aka Basic, Premium, Business and Ultimate).

I think it would be personally worth the money to get it,
