Default This is it... $1500 to spend GIVE IT TO ME :)

Ok people I got $1500 to spend from christmas money... Ide like to squeeze every penny into performance, as much as possible. I do not need a monitor. As a benchmark, I'de like this rig to play F.E.A.R. on max settings. Is this possible? Everything i need except a monitor. Any help would rock!!

OR, you just don't have the knowledge or skills to build your own and you just don't want to learn.
