All help is greatly apperciated =)
For an mid-gamer PC, look at my signature spec in GREEN, I paid around $1100 for the whole thing and it's a good system. Although I haven't built it yet, I did order the parts.
edit: for a high-end gamer pc, change the cpu to a e6850 or q6600 and get a 320mb/640mb 8800gts/gtx. And maybe gskill RAM for best overclocking abilities. Oh yeah, and aftermarket cooling fans... I don't think you need to spend 2.5k on any computer system. A 1.8k should be MAX.... imo
