Default $1000 CAN Build( including shipping and tax)

time for a new gaming PC. need something that will last me a year or two since I will be upgrading later on. my budget is 1000-1100 tops including shipping and tax, keyboard and mouse. I wanna be able to play Crysis on High( with those costum config stuff) at a 30fps through out the game even during heavy fighting parts if that's possible. any brand is fine for me...but I would prefer nvidia since I've never used a ATi gpu.

E8400

Your probably better waiting till late November around black Friday. Rebates and sales should be pretty good this year. Suggestions anyway:

Mushkin HP PC2-6400 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-800 CL5-4-4-12 240PIN DIMM Dual Channel Memory Kit $90.18
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB 7200RPM 32MB Dual Proc 3.5IN SATA Hard Drive OEM 5YR Mfg Warranty $99.99

Find this sort of stuff on sale; it's all expensive right now leading to some less then ideal choices (the case for instance).
