Default 1000$ gaming pc

i have a thousand dollars that i want to spend on a gaming system. i want to build one actually. the thousand dollars is just for my computer, not for like keyboard and monitor etc. i am going with intel and i have always liked nvidia. so any suggestion for a 1000$ gaming system.
thanks

Intel conroe any one you want 6300, 6400, 6600, 6700, 6800XT, but if i was u id wait for the Intel quads to come out cause games such as alan wake will require minimum a Quad core.
If you really cant wait till middle of 2007 then id suggest this

An asus Intel 775 mobo any will do, make sure to go over 130$, cause mobo is very important and you want a good one. One asus could be the P5b. Or what i heard was that ASrock was coming out with extremely good high end mobos with better price/perfomance specs. My sister has a ASrock mobo and it is very good.
Asus P5B
ASUS P5B-E Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

157$

eVGA 512-P2-N573-AR Geforce 7900GTO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3
253.99$

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
77.99$

BUFFALO Select 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)

199.9$

Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 ATX12V 500W Power Supply
74.99

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz 2M sharing L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor
220$

and a DVD rw wont cost u more than 30-40$ and that makes

Check out...

http://www.sharkyextreme.com/guides/...le.php/3633106

They put a gaming rig together for around $1000... one AMD based and one Intel based. I used this guide when I built my first PC and it worked out great! Hope that helps!
