Default What to focus on for gaming+web computers...

Well up until now, I was thinking that I could configure a top-of-the-line computer and buy it in a year, not thinking though that software will advance quickly too. So now budget is a major problem. So I need to focus on a couple of things. What's most important to focus on for gaming? The Ram, the GPU, or the Processor. What would be the next most important? Thanks

GPU will be most important; you'll want a 6600gt at least

ram- 512mb is minimal and will work, and 1 gig is optimal

cpu-not AS important, but if your cpu is too slow, it will bottleneck your performance

I would say that when it comes to gaming Ram And the Gcard are the essencial parts, (Ati of course) lol

personally i cant recommend anything without a little more info on what you need it for exactly.

P.s im fine with a 1.8ghz cpu
