I need some thoughts here. I'm getting my refund back and it's enough for me to invest in a new computer. However, I'm going the New Egg route and building my own. I'm looking for a high performance gaming rig. What kind of computer parts would you suggest? I'm looking at Intel processors but I'm open to AMD. What type of power supply should I get? What is your all suggestions for video cards? I'm all ears!

Also, my budget is around $1000 though I'm willing to spend slightly higher if the part justifies the cost (IE better video card, etc)
