Can somebody put together a system for me? $1,000 incl. moni

Hey, can somebody design a computer for me?
$1,000 is the budget and that includes the monitor.

These are my preferences:
I'm looking for a somewhat mid-ranged gaming PC. I am inclined to purchase the Radeon HD 4850. I don't need a whole lot of disk space, but as long as the price difference is not too high, I don't mind getting a little more.
Monitor: 22" - maybe there are currently some goods deal out there or sales, idk.

Apart from that, it's all on you

Thanks in advance.

In reply to: RE:

Thanks for your answers! What exactly is the point of buying a 64bit operating system? Is it really a good decision? Will I have any compatibility problems? I was considering to use my old windows XP. Is that a good decision?

Also, do you think a 20" monitor will be good enough, as I might not even play games on super high resolutions? Quality usually has priority for me.

Why didn't you go with the Radeon HD4850? I heard that it is currently the fastest card you can get for the price.

Package deal

I love my Dell Inspiron that's on sale at Best Buy this week 7/14/08. It's bundled with a 22" Dell Monitor and Canon Printer. The CPU has Intal Core 2 QUAD, 6 gigs SDRAM, 640 Harddrive, and runs VISTA Home Premium for around $900 with the 22" monitor upgrade. $798 with the 19" monitor. It's SO QUIET you can't even tell it's on except for the blue power light! Hope this helps.
