Default First Gaming Rig (need help!)

Heya im looking to build a new gaming PC and im not quite sure what components to get..and im finding it hard to find a good website that ships internationaly, as i live in spain... So, I was hoping you wonderful people would be able to help me with what I need to build the best gaming PC with the money I have.

SO ill be mainly using the computer for gaming...

Im looking to spend around $1200-1300, I have a monitor (native resolution is 1440-900), speakers and operating system so no need to replace them...so ill be needing everything else including mouse+keyboard...Im running XP atm, but i also have Vista 64bit.

I want to play games like crysis, COD, Farcry on fairly decent settings.. I really hope someone can help me out!

thank you

Soz don't know of any exclusive spanish shops but I know this one ships throughout Europe so you will be able to get it from these guys:
Case: pick your own;
KustomPCs - HTPC, Gaming, CarPC, Cooling and Modding Products in the UK !
KustomPCs - HTPC, Gaming, CarPC, Cooling and Modding Products in the UK !
KustomPCs.co.uk - Asus ATI Radeon EAH4870/HTDI/512M
KustomPCs.co.uk - Seagate 500Gb Barracuda NCQ 7200.11

Just noticed some stuff is out of stock if you email them on sales@kustompcs.co.uk (they usually reply within the hour) you can find out if they just haven't updated the site yet or the next delivery date.

I was recommended this website Overclockers UK, it ships to spain.... and seems to have a wide choice of products...its based in the UK... ($1250 is 850)

Personally don't like overclockers and only order from kustom but whatever you think is best . Doesn't matter whether it has a wide range you want the best kustoms website is setup so that every item listed is very good so that anyone who is unsure has limited options to get flooded by.

I wouldn't get that OCZ Mod Stream, that's on the avoid list from our Power Supply Guide.
