So, with the recent unveiling of Diablo 3 and the long awaited Starcraft 2 slowly getting closer. I decided I need a new comp. I was wondering if anyone could help me with some specs that are reasonably priced. Thinking around a grand or so. List whatever you think is necessary.

I recommend buying / building a PC WHEN a game you have to play is actually released.
"That build posted by Nomin is excellent, a very very nice PC, but I also agree you wait until closer to the games release, when you can either get it cheaper, or more performance for that money.Yeah, if you're buying it for specific games that aren't out for a while, then there's not really much point in buying the system now. Just sit it out. Lie in wait. Like a cobra.
