CPU: Core 2 Duo E6750
PSU: ~650W trusted brand PSU manufacture. I like Antec.
Video card: Nvidia 8800GT
RAM: 2GB DDR2 high performance gaming RAM
HD: 7,200RPM ~250GB or so

PS: This will be able to run Crysis on high and should be around $1,000. I would look up all of the parts on Newegg for you and give you all of the links and prices and stuff but I am too tired. I will try tomorrow.

Not really, it all depends on the resolution the game is being played at and what a person considers playable.

I would recommend THIS case because its the cheapest and best looking full tower on newegg, or get the ANTEC 900 which is a pretty good gaming case that comes watercool ready with holes and everything.
