Here's what I've compiled so far. I'd welcome any opinions (and preferrably a slight explanation why). I'm quite computer adept however being poor for quite some time has left me with no interest in hardware until now :P.
The biggest reason I want a gaming PC is to be able to heavily mod some of my favorite games (Elder Scrolls series, GTA series, Civ, etc). Course though I'd love being able to run the newest games at the highest settings for a while at least.
While I started out aiming for 2k$ price or so after doing research it kind of seems needless in many respects to go above 1k or even closer to 800.
I also welcome monitor, keyboard and mouse reccomendations. Currently I'm pondering; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009422&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID= or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824254112&leaderboard=1. AS well as http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823129030&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
I may bite the bullet so to speak on a few of these today as their deals end (specifically the case which is a 30$ rebate due today!).
