What's you're budget? Do you need a monitor , keyboard & mouse?

Would you be interested in overclocking? Or even know how to?

Are you a gamer?

EDIT:
ok you've posted before I posted this:

If I were you i'd do some research on overclocking and decide if it's something you are interested in doing. It's not too difficult, yet you may not want to start with expensive parts.

If your budget is limitless then you could do a lot better than that. Hold on a sec while I whip something up.

PS.
Sorry for making you sad
