    Looking to go for a 2.40 conroe .. machine will be running on a Dell 2007FPW at 1650x1080 .. want to be able to play WoW / CS:S / BF2 etc with a nice peppering of AA/AF aswell as HDR on the supported games without it chugging!

    Interested to see what sort of spec people can come up with for a grand.

    Great spec, but I would swap the CPU for a - Intel Core 2 DUO E6400 and change the GPU to a 1900XT. Also you may want a sound card too (amazing difference).
