Default The Time Has Come! gamin pc rig!

Well, today is my birthday =P, i have been saving for a while now and with today total, i now have $1035. I want to build a new Gaming PC. I only need the actual PC, i am going to get a new monitor on christmas( like 22" or 24" probably), i am going to get a lycosa mirror ed. keyboard, already have a deathadder, and so on. So i want all of my money ($1035) going towards the actual PC. I was hoping the i7 because this pc has to last me a while, like atleast 2 years till i get a job and whatnot. so i do not look to upgrade untill next year atleast, hoping i dont have to though. But if its better for me to get like an i5 or something else and put more money towards the GFX card or motherboard i can understand, i prefer best performance for when im gaming so i don't need to upgrade to soon but i dont want to degrade like the motherboard because if i got something really good and something bad, its not gonna work at its best anyways... So what ever you guys think for the best Gaming PC with $1035. I will probably need a new case, i do have an OLD mid tower case, i think it will fit but also i think that air ventilation in a new one would be better, if you guys think i should get a case, please... get a good cheap one. not a like a 200$ case. IMO: i prefer gaming performance than looks anyday. SO, Thank You everyone that helps me build the Computer of my Dreams XD.

THANK YOU!

If you live near a Microcenter you could get a i7 for $200 but I don't know if you live near one.
