All my stuff was just under $900 after shipping, I play BF2 on full everything, COD2 on full, FEAR on all high settings...only thing I would reconsider in my list is the PSU..people say the aspire power supplies suck...i haven't had any issues though.
But if you're get anything I have..get the XFX 6800GS, best bang for your buck at the moment for a vid card.
The 3700+ San Diego is probably the best bang for your buck as far as gaming, it overclocks to fx-57 (best gaming chip out) speeds with the same core...its a single-core processor, which for gaming is all you'll need, but if you want to do a lot of processing with programs in windows and what not, you'll want a dual-core like the 3800+.
I like my MB, but I hear a lot of good things about the DFI lanparty.
I always highly recommend the case I got, great cooling, room for all kinds of fans (120 mm in back, 80 mm on top, 2 80mm on front, side intake w/ duct)
