What games? Anything and everything pretty much. Oh, and if anyone has any keyboard, mouse, monitor, speaker suggestions as well that would be cool. I wasn't sure at first if I wanted new ones but now I am

He probably meant if youre going to be playing graphically demanding games like Oblivion,Crysis,Fear or what not.

What would your budget be for all this?

As far as which Mouse,keyboard,and monitor to get would depend on your budget

Yeah, I'll be playing games such as Oblivion and Crysis. I would like an 8800GTX but I don't really think I can fit that into a 1500-1600 dollar budget. I probably won't game in resolutions far beyond 1280 x 1024.

Of course you could heres a list

Antec 900 case
q6600
nVIDIA 8800 GTX
XCLIO GREATPOWER 550W PSU
Crucial Ballistix 2x1gb or G.SKILL 2x1gb
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R mobo
Tuniq 120
Seagate 320gb Hard Drive
Sony NEC Optiarc drive

All this would come to about $1470-1500 without any MIR or shipping
All this was estimated on newegg
