Default Gaming system for a budget of only $1000

Hey guys this is my first post on these forums but one of the first questions I have is regarding a new gaming system I want to build. I was wondering what parts from Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! would yield me a gaming computer for 1000 bucks or less. I already have Windows Vista Ultimate so I won't need software. Any advice would be nice .

Thanks,

PS I want best bang for buck I think

I would go with B1gapl's build and choose the DS3R board and then if you want to spend the extra 20 bucks grab an E6420.

Agreed....the P35 is the better overclocker out of all those motherboards...and the extra money for the e6420, will get you a bit further with the P35, with the higher multiplier it has, compared to the e6320.
