Parts are basically a case of how long is a piece of string there is no answer, it depends on the computers use and how long its to last what you want to spend money on how you plan to upgrade in future. Also its just lazy getting other people to rake through websites for your parts,
Read some reviews and look on the sites, you want an AMD cpu and 2Gbs of ram preferably on an NF4 motherboard with a 500W ish quality psu.

Man, i remember when the 7800GTX was the big hype, now the 8000 is due for release?
talk about remebering, i remember when 3d acceleration at all was a big thing.
yeah, depending whether you want to spend $200 or $300, get either the 6800gs or the 7800gt for a graphics card. both will run every game today great, the 7800gt probably will take you more into the future. i wouldnt wait for the 8000's though, it will just be the same, and then you will want to wait for 9000s or whatever.
i just wonder why nvidia always releases (in any specific series) the top end first, then low end, then middle, then moves on. ex: 6800 + gt +ultra, 6200, 6600 + gt, 6600le... 7800gt + gtx, 7300, 7800gs....

AMD 4400+ Athlon X2
Scythe Ninja HSF
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum or DFI UT nForce 4 Ultra mobo
1 Gb Corsair XMS RAM in 512Mb sticks.
250Gb Seagate HDD
535 Watt Enermax PSU
Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers
this is the specs. you could cut down the costs by buying a 3700+ CPU because it is the same core as the 4400+ but the 4400+ has two 3700+ in it. 4400+ is for general multimedia stuff, games now adays only take one core, soon however there will be games using two or more cores. but the second core allows you to run two games at the same time(no idea why), run a virus scan and a game, encode media and run a game or any two CPU intensive tasks with out ever lagging. you could also move down to a 6800GS or X800GTO which both are good enough for anything but FEAR, COD2 and stuff like that. maybe you could get the 3700+, a MSI K8N SLI mobo (Diamond ones are good) and pair it up with two 6800GS in SLI. it's a bit cheaper i think, not sure cos i don't want to try and work it out(just lazy). that way you can brag about a SLI setup with a good gaming CPU and still have decent speeds!
