Now I got that out of the way, here my are suggestions.

If gaming is what you had in mind, go with at least a 24inch monitor. 1900x1280res. This is only time I will recommend a Dell...ultra sharp 24inch with S-IPS panel will do you good.

1. CPU: If you really need the latest and the greatest..go with QX9650, or Q6700 if you just want a quad.
2. 780i, for tri-sli.
3. 3 8800gtx or 2 8800gts
4. At least 4gb of ram (G.SKill have some for 85 shipped at Newegg)
5. Personal choice, I would go with Raid Raptors (2x150) for OS. This will help the game flow along as it will load quicker.
6. Asus Xonar D2 for sound card, or Prelude
7. Corsair 1000 watt PSU
8. 500gb or higher HD for storage. WD640 is a great drive.
9. Thermalright Ultra Extreme 120 Cpu Cooler
10. Cosmo 1000 or stacker case
11. vista 64bit
12. Logitech G15 keyboard, G5 or G9 mouse.
13. z5500 5.1 speaker system


That whole step will run you around 3k or so..more or less.
i gotta agree there. cept i'd def run the 8800GTX 3 way sli. the q6700 will do just fine.
