Default Building a gaming desktop

I am planning on building a gaming pc but I don't know what parts to get so if anyone can help me to decide that would be very nice.

Budget 500GBP this budget is for everything in the desktop

My brother can put the desktop together for me but he wants me to find out what parts I should get.

I plan on playing games like call of duty on this pc on high settings if I can with my budget.

I built you an AMD rig from a UK site. AMD will also release their 8 core cpu soon so you have the option to upgrade to that.
This build can play all games at high settings on a 1920x1080 monitor. Call of duty Modernwarfare and Blackops can be maxed out easily.

If you have to include the monitor on your 500 budget, you can always buy a 500GB harddrive instead of 1TB to free some budget, or choose a cheaper pc case.

46.98 Antec 300 Case
48.66 Coolermaster 550watt powersupply
57.45 Asus 880g AM3 motherboard with cpu unlock
91.25 AMD Phenom II 955 BE 3.2 ghz quadcore
18.09 Coolermaster CPU cooler
139.98 Powercolor HD6850 videocard
23.00 4GB ddr3 ram
69.59 1TB Sata harddrive
______________________
495 Total

*note
I chose the asus motherboard because it has the option to unlock cpu. If you want to try your luck, you can get a cheaper AMD Phenom II dualcore or Athlon II X3 455 instead and try unlocking them to a quad core. (this saves you about 50 gbp)

Thanks I'll probabally go with what your saying then.

The 500 budget is for the desktop itself I have 200 budget for other stuff like a monitor headset keyboard and mouse if you have any recommendations for them.

I always cheap out on keyboard and mouse and spend only 5 gbp on them

You could also build an intel i5 2500k instead, it will be a bit faster but more expensive and you'll have to buy a slower videocard than an HD6850 to keep within the budget.
Ask your brother if he can find a Coolermaster Hyper 212 cpu cooler, I think its cheaper than the one I listed but I couldnt find it on that site.
Its great for cooling overclocked cpus.
