  1. I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, but who has the best microatx (or atx) gaming build for me?? I need to stay under $1000. I want to play Star Trek online, Crysis 2, Diablo III, etc.

    Well, you have a lot of options.

    Considering you don't need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. I suggest these:

    Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz - $199.99
    MSI P55-GD65 LGA 1156 - $159.99
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 2 x 2GB DDR3 1600 - $93.99
    SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5850 1GB - $289.99
    Corsair 650TX 650W PSU - $99.99
    Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache - $69.99
    COOLER MASTER RC-690 - $79.99

    Total - $993.93

    Now, if you need a monitor and other peripherals in that budget, we'll have to compromise a bit. :)
