Default Building a desktop and need advice;

Looking to build a powerful PC for under $1500. I play mmorpgs (WoW, DAoC) and online FPS's. Please leave any suggestions for motherboards, processors, video cards, and anything else that will allow me to play online games at a high quality level. I want to get the most power and quality for my money, thanks in advance for the suggestions!
