Anyone have some suggestions on the parts I should get to build a $700-$800 gaming computer. I really have no idea what I should get, in the past I just went to a store like Besybuy and got one already assembled. All I need is the tower, it's components, and an OS. Already have a good monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I live in the United States. As for my old computer, I'm not going to keep any of it. I would like suggestions on a new MB, CPU, GPU, Memory, HDD, PSU, Case, and DVD burner.

My suggestion Will be for an Intel build using a P67 Motherboard and Sandy Bridge CPU.

There was a fault on the Intel Cougar Point Chipsets. resulting in the recall of all Motherboards. Anyone who bought a faulty board will have it replaced. New boards should be back at retailers this month.

Newegg is about the best place to buy parts from. I would register on the site so you can create a wish list. You can add or subtract from the list keeping track of your selection and always have a current total of your potential spend.

A couple of reviews for you to look at, let me know what you think.
