A gaming rig for 1300 really...wow lets see what I can do.

CPU:Q6600 w/ Tuniq Tower
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L
Video:EVGA 8800GTX
Ram: Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB)
PSU: CORSAIR 620HX l
Case: Centurion 532
Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB

I just put that together very fast and without really looking....this is not the best build for your money exactly. I just wanted to show you how much of a better gaming computer can be built with that kind of money.

With just Newegg alone my shopping cart is 1344....if you used other places i bet same parts could be hard for around 1250
