    What I need: list of parts for a good ~1000$ gaming computer, doesn't have to be top of the line gaming, but good enough for most games. i'm not making the computer within the next 2 weeks, so I can wait until Core 2 duos get stocked on newegg. i tried making a basic outline, but then i ran into some problems like what Ram has to go with the core2s and whether or not a 7900GT is that much better than a 7600GT and other things.

    all help is a appreciated, sorry for the long run-on paragraph, i'm tired :wacko:

    also forgot to add: I need an OS, preferably media center, so work around that :lol:
