    For pc gaming, listed in order, 1) Video Card, 2) Ram, and 3)Processor are pretty much the main things most people will spend on for gaming .

    well....i don think there is a correct answer if one has to be chosen.

    If you have a great video card, but a weak cpu, it's not going to be a great system.

    vice versa, if you have a great cpu, but a weak video card, same results.

    the amount of ram/speed of ram should also be taken into consideration

    then there's the motherboard....

    Basically, my point is, instead of getting a top of the line component, you might as well spend that money and get a well balance computer.

    EDIT: ohhh wth...i went pass 1000 post already? i dont even go here that much anymore.

    Most money should be spent on the monitor.
    It's an expensive part anyway and when you consider you're gonna be looking at it almost the entire time you're at the computer, you'll appreciate the best you can afford.

    PSU, no point having a 100wt PSU with a GT6600 now is there. Either way without each part a computer is useless.

    Im pretty sure without a motherboard... you wont really be able to get anything accomplished...
