Default $900-1000 Gaming Rig. Would like to purchase asap!

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next 3-10 Days of this Post BUDGET RANGE: $1,000 Before Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Streaming Movies, Expandability, Homework/Surfing the Web

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Mouse, Keyboard, Operating System, Speakers


PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD Quad Core 3.2/3.4.....Corsair PSU......Radeon 5770 or 5780 (Think thats correct?- Whatever has best Combo Deals).....Thinking an Antec Case.....Ripjaw Ram?

OVERCLOCKING: Probably not...

MONITOR RESOLUTION: I'm not even sure....Something that will work on a 22-24 inch monitor greatly, 1900x____? perhaps.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Just would like an overall build, including a monitor. I have my tax money laying around and is extremely sick of trying to game on my Sony Vaio Laptop!

Like I said above, I'm not too sure how to choose the necessary parts to make sure they all work. What i am really looking for, but also, depending on Combo Deals....(Rough Draft as you take it)

AMD Quad Core 3.2 or 3.4

MONITOR (Although im fairly sure I can find cheaper)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6824009243

PSU: Corsair

As for graphics, I'm not sure. I play games such as WOW, COD Series, Battlefield Series, Starcraft2, ect......Im by no means a hardcore gamer. Sure would be nice to max out graphics though! I was thinking a 5770, but then again, whatever comes with the best Combo Deals. Hard Drive, Optical Drive-don't really matter all that much to me.

Ram, Again, I'm not sure...Was thinking 4 gig RipJaw? Like I said above many times----Combo Deals!
