Default Computer Build

Hey everyone!!!

I need a good gaming computer. I want an intel and a ati video card.
My budget is $1200 and it is alright if its a little over. This is going to be the first time I have ever built a computer so I need everything except the monitor, mouse and keyboard. Thanks for the advice.

I quite like that Tower - very powerful looking Although you can't beat a massive selfmade hunk of metal as a tower; that is just the opitomy of powerful looking.

Intel are the best!

Intel isn't the best, but I'm not going to get into that right now.

You did say oh never mind he wants Intel - I decided that he needed to be backed up on his brilliant decision.
