Default First Gaming comp ( Im a Noob )

Hi guys, so this summer, i plan to build my VERY first gaming computer.. and its probably gonna be a budget rig. I know alot of people ask this kind of question on the forums, but i know nothing about computer parts, so i thought i'd ask around.... basically i have a budget of $1300-1400(canadian) for the parts+OS and probably monitor+keyboard& mice..

with the budget i want to be able to get a decent gaming computer that can run games at a relativly good FPS and look cool too

i am going to be ordering everything from www.newegg.ca so it would be nice if you guys and girls can suggest and list me EVERY single parts i need within my budget for a decent gaming rig


tnx in advance

Will you be wanting to purchase an OS that's good for more than one year (~$100), or do you want to use the free Windows 7 RC until mid-year next year, then purchase an O/S?

Windows 7 is basically a "better"/"refined" Vista. So, long story short, yes.

Is WoW the only type of "game" you will be playing? You won't need a very hefty system if that's all you plan to do...

$1400 comes out to be around $1250 USD. So we are probably looking to be withing $1100-$1250.
