    That system by OE would work but just rememebr it has to be pretty
    Lol 'pretty'... It's true though; leaves a memorable mark.
    On what to get to satisfy ur gaming hunger, first you need to find out what the current gamin standards are, like the minimuor reccomended specs tht u need to run most games. THEN u need to take a look at ur piggy bank, if he is skinnier than ur cat (assuming u have a cat)don't bother, but since you said tht you got a new job tht pays well, just decide if you are willing to spend the money to meet the standards. If u can then enjoy ur new gaming rig.

    Oh don't forget to go flashy, neons and clean cabling, if u are hardcore enough try a water cooling system

    Randy look like him deh pan some style man thing. Whatever you do mek sure it *contributes* to you're actual PC performing better. DO NOT get a flashy case becaz it *pretty*...The Antec 900 is a gaming case(comes with flashy things to)BUT...ergonomically designed to boost you're gaming experience by strategically placed 'intake\exhaust fans' - huge ones too.

    its not a pretty case to always look at but it is high end top-a-di-line where you actually see the difference in performance benchmark.

    awww...good stuff.

    Mid-range pricing(800USD) giving dream system performance.

    Up the PSU(550W in 4 years isnt sexy at all)
    i7 CPU would be nice but more pricey

    Good part picks
