Default $1000 Budget...no monitor...GAMES GAMES GAMES!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I've got a $1000USD Budget to build the most happening possible dual-core gaming system.

i need the tower and all its contents...a good psu, etc etc!

thanks for any help!

i was looking at the aerocool extremengine case with an enermax 400w liberty...if you'd recommend something else, that's fine. I was planning on buying from newegg...but if there's somewhere else that's cheaper, I'm willing to consider it!

That should get you started.

Pick whatever case you want.

hey if you have money the 6600 is the best deal that means only if you know how to overclock and get some free vooooophm. the other one is nice too but it only has 2 MB of L2 compare to 6600's 4 MB and that's the biggest difference.

I am the yellow one.
