Default Need help with a build, under $1500 gaming PC

So i need a complete system, including keyboard and monitor. Mostly gonna be used for playing EQ2. My Q6600 9800GTX 4gb ram is getting bogged down pretty bad in that game, need something new. Would like to keep it under 1500.
Edit: i get my OS free with MSDNAA, and i need my motherboard to have wireless, not sure if that is standard now or not.

awesome, thank you. Would i get a noticeable performance increase over my Q6600 G0 stepping OCd to 3.0ghz? im guessing its the new architecture that provides the increase
