Can anyone recommend me a build thats under $1000 (the lower the better) that will play all games on very high for 1 1/2 to 2 years.

The only one thing I want you guys to include in the builds is the Antec 902. Thats all.
In the build I'll need
-cpu

-motherboard

-RAM

-video card

-case (really good cooling)

-power supply

-22/19" monitor

-2.0 speakers

- hard drive

-optical drive

- heatsink


Thanks to all who answers!!! :bounce:

 
I'm sure you can choose speakers...if you already have an O/S, then take it off this build, and get that antec 900. I wasn't sure if you had one or not, and I wasn't about to gut this build for a case with flashy lights.
