    For ~$1000+tax:


    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB SATA hard drive
    22X DVD±RW drive dual layer
    ATI HD5670 1GB GDDR5


    For roughly $50 more:

    Intel Core i5-750
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB SATA hard drive
    24X DVD±RW drive dual layer
    ATI HD5670 1GB DDR5

    OR

    Intel Core i7-860
    8 GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM
    1TB SATA hard drive
    ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB DDR5


    Unfortunately buying the pieces online and building myself isn't possible (hooray for rural areas), so prebuilt is my only option.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Third one is your best option.
    Ellipses go here.

    If building yourself Isn't possible, then I'd go with the third option.

    I'd say the third option is the best. I just built a computer with similar specs.

    Third option for sure. Avoid AMD at all costs. Its obsolete now.

    Though i've liked AMD for so many years, and most if not all of my setups were based on AMD, on my last setup i had to switch on an Intel, those latest cpus of theirs are really good. i got an 870 and it's pretty amazing.
    So yeah i will have to suggest your third option as well, that 860 is pretty good.
    As a side note, if you can go for some extra cost, then consider also the HD5850 instead of the 5670. There's a substancial difference in price, but if you can afford it, by all means go for it.
    Good luck, i hope you enjoy your new rig pretty soon!
