Default Want to build a computer

Hi I've never built a computer before but I think it will be a good experience and I am in need of a new computer. I want a computer for gaming and multitasking. My budget is between $1000-$1500. So I was wondering if someone could recommend me all the parts I need including a monitor, keyboard, mouse, case, hardware, etc. Thanks

Ok everything looks good so far. Oh and I already have windows vista so that's not necessary. A few more suggestions would be nice. Thanks a lot guys.
