Hello, Im looking for a new computer for roughly $1,200-$1,500 CDN that will allow me to play some current games (Fallout 3, Stalker, Kings Bounty: The Legend) and a few in the upcoming years (Diablo 3 to name one). I need some expert advice on what to get in that price range (hopefully including monitor,keyboard & mouse and speakers, but all those can be the most basic). Please help me.

You would probably be fine with a newer AMD Phenom II, $150+ mobo, 4gb ddr2 (CHEAP) and get a very high end video card (most you can afford IMO), along with a 750Watt pc power and cooling or Corsair PSU. If you needed extra juice the 850W versions would be plenty for any future upgrades aka new video cards..

If you go for an Intel Core i7 you will probably be slightly over the budget and end up getting a lil slower on the video card as well. Might as well go AMD Phenom II as I advised 1st.
