Default Good System for 1000$

Anyone know of any good system for $1000 not including the hard drive, speakers, keyboard, mouse, monitor. I will use this for gaming, I want something that can run all the latest games on high. And It'd be nice if it had PCI-E

um dude the cpu sucks, and why did you get such exspensive OC'ing ram?

If your going to OC get an opteron or somthing.....

4200+ sucks too. 3800 4400 and 4800 are the good X2 processors.

Simple Question...Do you want to OC or not? Are you willing to comit the money and time?

Yeah I agree with you. One question though. Does that motherboard support SLI?

SLI = waste of money, you can only buy one video card right now anyway. By the time you collect another $300 the DX10 cards will probably be out.

And just go with an Opteron 165, ANYONE can OC it to 2.2Ghz without even changing any thing but the HT.

Everything else is fine, but I'd say go with some G. Skill 2x1Gb PC3200 Extreme Memory. And please, DFI Nforce4 Ultra-D.
