What do you think you would pay for a gaming pc not high high end but in the 1,000-1700$$ price? And is it even possible to get a computer for that cheap to run crysis on max?

I think you should stick to Core 2 Duo

Someone in the Tech forum once mentioned that the 8800 Ultras are only a slight performance gain over the GTXs for more money.

Actually you get double the framerate and crispness, and way less lag etc.

tesher, I suggest you go the the Filefront Tech Discussion forum and post something like this there. The guys there are really knowledgeable (I go to them quite a bit. I stink at this kind of stuff)

tesher07;3814619APEVIA X-PLEASURE-BK Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail $129.99

No experiences on this one. I've got Antec P180, and it's great.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail $317.00

That's good, but have you considered E6600 or E6450. You could be paying a lot for just few hundred megahertz with the 6700.

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM $74.99

That's nice.

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail $90.99

Good, but most of the time new motherboards already have rather good soundcards - not X-Fi though.

EVGA 768-P2-N885-AR GeForce 8800Ultra 768MB 384-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail $629.99

Good card, although you'd save a lot of money if you bought the GTS or GTX model. I think your processor would not actually keep up with Ultra.

Thermaltake Purepower RX W0144RU ATX12V / EPS12V 600W Power Supply 115/230 V CE, FCC, UL, CUL, TUV, and BSMI certification - Retail $124.99

I think Thermaltake makes fine PSUs.

EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail $219.99

This shouldn't be bad either. A bit on the expensive side, but I guess you're getting what you're paying for. Also, do you really need SLI?

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail $138.00

You could get memory for a lot less, but if you are intending on overclocking, XMS should be a good choice.

Is that to much? my dad said he isnt going to pay $2000 dollars because new things are coming out soon.

Well, that's definitely a good setup, but for like half the money you'd get a setup good enough for the recent games. If you're planning on playing Crysis, I'd suggest you wait and buy a new PC once it's out. You could probably get a Core2Quad setup for the same price then. My suggestion would be to save a bit on components (by getting like E6600, 8800GTS/GTX, normal mobo, bulk memory) and use the money on a good 22" or 24" monitor to view those good looking games from (no reason to buy a rig that tight and play from a 17" or 19" monitor).
