You shouldn't buy anything first. You should wait until you are sure of every component that you want and you have enough money to buy all the components, then buy it all at the same time. If you buy components one at a time, by the time you buy the last component, the first one you bought is obsolete.

Well, that would depend on your budget and intended uses of the system. I know you say gaming, but what type of games will you be playing? Crysis? WoW? (etc.)
