Default First build, gaming rig $800-1000

Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help build me a Gaming Rig in the price range of $800-$1000. I would like it to have an Intel based processor. You can exclude the price of a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. If you could include a dvd writer/reader. And preferably a 1tb hard drive. Also it is going to be primarily for gaming so I want to be able to play the games at the maximum settings. I prefer 4 gb of RAM, so I'll be running Windows 7 64bit, so if you could throw the OS in the list as well.

If it isn't too much trouble could you post the links to the parts on new egg.

Thanks so much

You are getting some not-so-good parts with that bundle. The EVGA mobo is so-so, the Seagate drive is not as good as the WD Black 750GB, and that PSU is a crap-shoot.

Here are my suggestions:

Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80605I5750 - Retail
&
GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3R LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail


Newegg.com - Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BA1067 - Desktop Memory

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1257-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-N964-LR GeForce 9600 GSO 1GB 128-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

$1009 w/free shipping on the CPU, mobo, hard drive, 9600, case, and PSU. Total of $55 in MIR.

Were it me, I would drop the 260 and 9600, put $10 with it, and get one of these when them come in on the 19th:
Newegg.com - XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I am guessing the 9600 was for PhysX... which very few games actually use.

Yes, a single, faster card is the better solution.
