Hello everyone I'm new so please bear with me I figured it would be cheaper to build my own system my question is what parts do you reccomend for a gamer and a programmer if you need anymore information just let me know thanks in advance

I'm sorry I realalized I didn't give you enough details I have never built a computer before I have opened a computer up before and removed ram chips and video cards but that is about it so I'm looking for an knowledge overload if you know what I mean heh so please be patient with me thanks.

How much are you willing to spend on this (OS and other stuff (monitor, speakers, etc.) included)?
Are you planning a SLI or Crossfire setup?

You can do quite a lot with 3k.
Motherboard~ Asus Rampage 2 Extreme: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131352

CPU~ Intel i7 920: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115202

RAM~ G Skill 6GB Triple Channel DDR3 2000: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231254

HDD for OS: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136322

HDD for storage: http://www.newegg.co.....0caviar black

Cases: CM Cosmos: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811119138
OR CM HAF 932: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811119160
OR Antec 1200: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811129043

OS~ Windows Vista Ultimate w/ free upgrade coupon for 7: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16832116678

Monitor~ Hyundai 22" 1080p: http://www.tigerdire...e...&CatId=2775
I have this monitor and it is excellent.

Graphics Card~ GTX 295 EVGA For The Win Edition: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130510

CD/DVD burner: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827151187
With all this the price is: $2166 which is under your budget. Spend the rest on a gaming keyboard, mouse, speakers, a better monitor, a power supply (sorry I didn't include it), a better i7, or a BD drive.

For a power supply I suggest the Corsair 1000W: http://www.newegg.co.....corsair 1000w
