Yes, Budget is your best first step. "The Best" could cost you a pretty penny...

but sub-par or "almost as good" is often much more affordable!

Plus... as in processors and boards...technology changes daily...what is great now can change with the blink of an eye.

what kind of games are you using? are you playing any of them online?

well my ideal budget would be araund ~$1200
but it would be helpfull aswell, if you could tell me what 'the best ' would cost
i play mainly first person shooters e.g. joint opperations,battlefield,desert combat, far cry...
but also flight sims like Jane's F/A-18E super hornet or lock on
they are all pritty demanding games and once there are new ones on the market like battlefield 2 etc...,i will need something good or i can buy a new computer in half a year again so basicly i do want the best available

Best bet is to buy the parts and get someone/you to assemble it. Much cheaper.

so do you know how to put together parts?? Or do you know anybody who does???

Because if u do, we';ll just look for parts for u.
But if you dont, we'll have to look for custom made pc's.
