Approximate Purchase Date: By next month

Budget Range: $1000 after rebates and shipping ( I am in Ontario, Canada)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming and Fraps/Video editing

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Full new PC at http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/QXmz

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: ca.pcpartpicker.com

Location: City, State/Region, Country - Brampton, Ontario, Canada

Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Must be equivalent to fx-8320 or higher (doesnt matter if Intel or AMD chipset, but must beat fx-8320), and gfx card must be 7970 or higher :p 

Overclocking: Most likely

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Basically preparing this PC for BF4 and GTA V when they release, and also for any other games that come out later this year to late next year before needing a huge upgrade.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Need to run games better as my current 9400gt and pentium dual core 2.0Ghz with 2gb RAM are NOT cutting it.

Can you please tell me if this build will work together, or a completely better alternative. It would be nice.

Raidmax PSUs aren't that good.
I would recommend Seasonic, Corsair, Antec and XFX.

Your build does not include a couple things, the GPU is not priced nor the PSU, Case, and Motherboard. Which means of course that the pricing is inaccurate. You are going to have to redo your entire budget, otherwise you really cannot get those parts without spending $800 more.

Uhh. All the prices show up for me. The tax/shipping and rebates included. I know what you mean by the prices not showing up, but all of them are there. As a reminder, I am residing in Canada, and so the prices and brands may be different for places outside of Canada.

Your build (looked it up myself) is $2k... not 1000, if you had a miss post please point this out, but otherwise with the actual pricing of each part it is 2000... I used CA pc partpicker as well
