Default Building a New PC

Hey, I'm looking to build a new Mid-Ranged Gaming PC and need some help with the parts. My HP is getting kind of old and can't really keep up with the games I want to play, so if you can help me out and tell me what parts you think would be good for a Mid-Ranged Gaming PC that would be great. If you could also put in a Case and Cooling System that would be great too.

Thanks In Advance.

I'm not really sure but I have alot of money coming up, it's just that I don't want to spend too much that's why I asked for a Mid-Ranged PC. Not sure how much that would cost I just want a PC that can run all the games out today smootly.

I'd say around 2000$ CDN. Which is about 1500$ US. Not sure what that can get me but if that can do it then that's fine. If it's not enough I could save some more.

Definately at least an athlon 64 2800+ or higher, as for the mobo, it depends on if you will be overclocking. The two main ones I can think of are this abit for stability in overclocking- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-178&depa=1

And this asus one for just all around quality- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-491&depa=1

That's all I can really say other then this hdd which I HIGHLY recommend- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-160&depa=1

Yes I have a monitor, but no speakers, but don't include them in the 1500$. If you can tell me what speakers are good, and even a monitor I might be willing to switch. I have a Samsung 19" Flat Screen (Forgot what model I'm not at home), is this any good?
