Should be a simple one here!

Hi all,

Love the site. Could any of you put together a build (or refer me to one) in the $800-$1200 range that will play Runescape, Sims 3, Napoleon Total War and Civilization 5 on ultra settings with max FPS? I've never had a machine with a dedicated graphics card, so I've only been able to play them on low-medium, and I'm a graphics nut. I'm a medical student and I just want an awesome computer that can play a few of my favorite games that look sweet when I'm chilling out. You guys know far more than I ever will with this!

I appreciate it!

Peripherals included? What about windows? Any color preferences?

Peripherals not included, I have no color preferences. Purely functionality here.
