Default New Computer

pretty much I know very little about computers, had one made for me a couple years ago and need a new one. I want it for gaming, i play daoc, wow and going to start eq2.Im having someone else build it for me, i have 1000$ budget but could stretch to 1200 if the part thats stretching the budget would really be that big of a help. In the budget though i need to fit in a wireless card and i want it to be the best one i can get, i have wireless internet and it constantly cuts out while playing and i need to get a really good one. Any suggestions? Im going to buy my parts either off newegg or mwave. thanks alot.
I have speakers, keyboard. ,mouse, and monitor ( monitors not that great if theres a nice one for cheap you could include that to ) also don't want sound card. i could care less about sound

Total comes to $863.44 without shipping. You just have to choose a case.

Depending on the monitor, if you play at a high resolution, like 1600 x 1200, an 8800GTS 640mb will suite you better. This would bring the total to about $950.

I wasn't sure about the wireless card, because I'm not knowledgeable in that area.

The Antec 900 is an awesome mid-tower case, with great airflow. For the CPU cooler, get the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Or if you have the money, get the more expensive Tuniq 120.
