Seriously. Get a grip, guys, and give him build advice.
To Mosephuss: Probably go AMD for your build. Their chips are plenty powerful enough, and you can score one for a good price.
8 gigabytes of RAM is plenty cheap nowadays, so shoot for that, and probably try to get like 1866 mHz.
1 TB harddrive, get a Caviar Black.
Do not get an SSD. They are too expensive, and you obviously have a limited budget.
AMD 7850's are pretty cheap too. It's a pretty solid choice as far as a graphics card goes. You can do plenty of gaming with it, and it'll be good for a while.
The rest is just stuff you'll have to pick, but no big deal.
Good luck! -Donny
