I would buy a ATI 5870 and with the money saved I would buy a i7 920, same price as i7 860, and a mobo for it... You may add a second one later on.

The 5870 is much better in terms of bang for buck so to me, its a better buy as well. You won't need an aftermarket cooler unless you plan on overclocking.

The PSU suggested seems a bit pricey. Go for this one: Newegg.com - OCZ GameXStream OCZ850GXSSLI ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 850Watts Power Supply 100 - 240 V CB, CE, CSA, UL

The i7 920 is probably a better buy and I think you should get an ATX mobo, not microATX

I've been spending a lot of time recently learning about gaming computers and I'm almost finished with my final build, look for the post New Gaming Computer V3. This will be my final if not very close to final build, and what I'm going to buy in a few days. The system will cost about $1,200 without the monitor, and will be able to run all the games you want to run perfectly.(I'm building it for the exact same games)

The few pieces that I'm still unsure of and getting advice on is my motherboard, power supply, and case). You will want to make sure the video card fits in the case.

What is your budget. We can build a system to any budget, so just asking for a gaming build is kinda open ended.

For a gaming build, I'd run the i5/ATI build, but do need a budget and country/store were you are.

I believe if you actually read his post it would say he has a $1,430 budget for the computer, not including the monitor. USD which is United States dollar.

He said he has 1430 USD to spend.
I would change this:
CPU+Mobo: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

GPU + RAM: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

It will cost you $1418.

Yup, totally missed it that one line. It was the way he put it in between "heres the game list" and the list of games. Eyes sorta jumped over it.
