APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: In the next month

RANGE: $1200 - $1500

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming mostly: I play WoW, HL2, Counter-Strike, Fallout 3.. and I'm going to be playing a couple new MMOs once they are released.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Speakers and monitor (I'll probably be using this monitor for a while, but may upgrade some time in the future)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: No specific preference

OVERCLOCKING: Probably

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: I'm not sure.. I'm open to it if someone thinks its a good idea.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680 x 1050

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This will be my first build, so I'd appreciate any advise. I want a system that will be good in terms up upgradability, and I also need a wireless card. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick response and links, I'm going to be ordering everything today.

Just as a side note for anyone using ewiz.com, when you buy a combo deal from them it negates the free ground shipping, even though both items had free shipping individually. For the MOBO+CPU deal I was looking at the lower price from the combo offset extra shipping, so the price ended up being the same whether you got the combo or not.
