Need help, first time builder


Feb 5, 2009
I'm looking to build my first ever PC. I know some of the parts in a PC but I have no idea which parts are better than others. If someone could suggest me some parts to use I would really appreciate it. I'm looking to play Crysis (doesn't have to be maxed out), The Orange Box, and Supreme Commander.

My budget is $1,000 and I need an OS, mouse, keyboard, monitors, and speakers. I don't know if you need to know this or not but I will be using pretty much only for gaming and web browsing. Thanks
