Spent most of the day researching these various things, but i am still unsure about it all. I used some of the stuff in the builds you guys gave me, and moved and imputed on preference.
I need to know if all is compatible and if its a overall good build for my wants. I did try on my own but i could of done it wrong.
Also, i need a cooler/heatsink for the CPU correct? any recommendations?

Not much moving room i know, but please look it over,
Hello, names Alex,
I've been saving up to purchase build a new Computer,
Budget around 800-1000 USD.
United States Here.
I'm hoping it can play most rpg/strategy games out and releasing within the next year or two on high graphics at least.
I've done some research but am very confused on compatibility between parts/components so i'm asking for a build or help creating a build to suit my gaming wants.
I want a good CPU, GPU, 4+ Gigs of ram and what ever else works with that. Also, good cooling for it, my last computer is over heating, but needs to be replaced either way.
I might have some usable parts in my current over heating computer(the graphics card is over heating) to use, but it is almost 3 years old. I literally need to keep a fan next to it to keep it on.
Older system has Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz, and 3 gigs of ram, not sure how to check brand and what not on rest of stuff without dissembling it, but i will if it helps.
I dont need monitor, key board, etc,
But most likely will need everything else, including windows 7 64bit.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated, including building a build for me, because i am quite lost,
