How much money do you want to spend? The best choices for Ram and Power supplies is OCZ, BFG is the best for nivdia graphics cards, AMD for a processor(the best gaming processors), and Maxtor for Hard drives. Google "building your own PC" and see what you come up with and read some of them.

You will need the following: Hard Drive (to store everything) RAM aka memory CPU (processor) Motherboard Videocard (graphics card) Audiocard (many motherboards come with sound built in) PC Case Monitor OS -Operating System (most likely Windows XP) Optical Drives (DVD-ROM DVD-RW) PSU (Power Supply) I think i covered everything, if you build it yourself you may need such things as > Fans (80mm work well) > Thermal Paste (to put under teh CPU) >Speakers That should be it...

Ultra also makes very good (stable) power supplies. The Ultra X-Connect PSU's are very nice....
