Hi guys. I have up to $1,000 to spend on a new computer.

Intel (which? I was thinking of Intel P4 2.53GB. do I need to know something about this CPU? )

Video card, Geforce4 Ti4200, ( which Brand? )

RDRAM OR DDR? (which Brand and best for O/C?)

Which Motherboard? (best for O/C)

How fast can I overclock the 2.53 with it's stock cooling?

Which Heatsink is best to over O/C?

What kind of motherboard should I get? I don't need sound and video.

Any case u like me to buy? I like a good looking case.. price have no Problem.

which PSU?

Keep in mind that the main purpose of this computer is for gaming and a everything computer and that I only have $1,000 to spend. Thanks, look forward to hearing your advice!
