Just to add to the above: my motherboard is Asus Sabertooth 990FX. CPU is AMD Quad core, Phenom II 955 (overclocked from 3.2 to 3.85 GHz with great options on Asus motherboard, and with very little heat increase thanks to Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo). 8 Gigs of G.Skill Ram; 2 X 1.5 Terabyte Western Digital fast transfer rate SATA Hard Drives (they're very fast particularly with fast SATA controllers on motherboard); NVidia GEFORCE GTX 460 Display adapter with 1 GB of fast ram; and an LG DVD Rom Drive.
Antec 650 Watt
(virtually no noise). Many power supplies are very loud as it turns out; but this one is quiet.
Total cost was under $1000 US Dollars. So far can run all games at max or almost max settings, with no problems, great frame rates.
