    I'm looking to build a new gaming pc at a budget price.
    I'm looking to spend anything under $1,200 not inculding mouse,keyboard,monitor,speakers ect.

    I just want CPU, motherboard, RAM, video card, extra cooler (If needed?), system drive, case and power supply.

    It doesnt matter if its US currency or Australian. Basically no difference anymore.

    I play games such as crysis, CoD, GRID, Spore, Gears, Tom Clancy's and so on and i want to be able to play these at a reasonably high quality.

    Just need a list of products, what site i can get them from and how much they will cost.

    Anything will help. Cheers ;p

    I've actually finished building a similar system for my brother, the only real difference is that the video card is a HD5770 and it runs Crysis, COD etc on the highest graphics and runs smoothly. With this system above you would have no problems at all.
