I am very new to all this, and very confused.

Now that I am making money I decided that it is time for a new computer.
I have a 23 inch monitor that I use for my PS3 and sometimes I hook it up to my laptop through HDMI but my laptop just doesn't do the trick on this monitor with gaming.

Would it be possible to have a budget set at about... 1.2k-1.4k and be able to run all games on the highest settings at 1920x1080 smoothly?

I already have a keyboard and mouse and speakers. And as mentioned above, I have a monitor as well. Only thing missing is the computer. =p

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. =]

Are you in the US or Canada, and how do you feel about overclocking. Yes to overclocking means, you can have a very powerful system for the money in your budget. Crysis with high settings and good performance is very much in your grasp.

Im in the US and I don't know much about overclocking but I wouldn't mind doing it in a safe range if it is going to make a difference.
