I don't feel like getting you a bunch of links and stuff, but I would suggest since you plan on gaming to get an AMD64.

Ok, so you need parts, but already have a case and powersupply?? Hmm, alrighty then. Here goes the ZEN again!!

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...80717-R-240418
That covers the MOBO and processor for 465 dollars. This MOBO is SLi capable, meaning it is PCI Express ready, and can have dual graphics cards! Also, the processor is KICK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next, Graphics Cards. Check this out, and you get two of these so you have dual GPUs!
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-214&depa=1
Remember, you will be having 2 of these!! KICK ASS!

Next, HardDrive: This is a 120GB SATA Seagate, GREAT DRIVE!!
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=101563

And finally, RAM, BEST IN THE WORLD!! Except it is NOT Low Latency Series, but still KICK ASS!
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=80097-20

TOTAL PRICE= $1,155 After Shipping (beat that!!, and it is DUAL graphics cards, with 1GB HYPERX RAM, and a AMD64 3500+ Processor!! with SLi ASUS MOBO!!!)

no such thing as a 3600+ or 3700+ in 939 pin. You could add a good soundcard, and make it 1,255 (sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS Gamer card.)

Here is a link-
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=360223

Then add a cathode light, and a DVDRom drive or somethin, and walla! 1,300 even! And BTW, this computer that i am putting the idea in your head for would kick most other peoples on this forums @ss, so it is great! Enjoy!

No, get the RAM i pointed out. Or, better yet, get one GB of this ram to bring the price up a bit. THis RAM is the low latency series. Get this instead:

No, 1GB or RAM is plenty for now. You can add another 1GB if you want later, maybe in a year or so. Whatever pleases you. Also, you probably want to get better CPU cooling if you could, instead of that proposed DVDROM drive. Then Overclock your CPU higher for even better performance (as if 3500+ wasn't crazy enough.....)
