Wow dude, for 2grand. You can build an ultimate gaming computer. I suggest you go to www.newegg.com
. I built a really nice computer for $650 and it works like a champion. But yes, for gaming you want an AMD processor, which well enough, cost less than an intel as well. I can play any and every game on my computer and it works smooth as hell. Go onto Newegg.com and look up parts. Youll need :CD/DVD drive, Floppy Drive, Harddrive, Processor, Case, Video/Graphics Card, Motherboard, and RAM (get 1024bits of ram. Or 1 gig) and a sound card. Look up that stuff, its the most basic. Possibly and extra fan or something.
