Okay we have a price range 1000-1200, you are a gamer, and you want something to be upgrade-able in two years. Before you begin, you have to ask/answer more specific questions than that.

Are you putting the computer together? Do you have the tools? Etc. Research! Research! Research! Building a PC is learning experience, and you will be happier to know you chose the parts to the unit.

There is so many different options you can go with with that price range, and depending on what kind of games you play will determine what hardware you will really need. Something that can be further upgraded in two years? Well a lot will change in two years for computing. It depends on how much you are willing to upgrade.

Some games are more CPU heavy and some games are more GPU heavy. What games do you play? Honestly though, with that budget I am sure you can play pretty much anything on the machine.

Will you be overclocking at all? Will the machine be used for video editing or any other kind of professional stuff or just games?

This Rig will surely play every game you throw at it on the highest settings even at 1080p and give 30+ FPS ( Even for Crysis 3 ) TBH all is powerful. About the 8GB RAM that comes with the Motherboard , I guess you should use it. But hurry , atleast buy the Motherboard ASAP. If you are not interested in buying OS ( UBUNTU FTW ), buy an i7-3770K , If you believe you will get a bottleneck from an i5-3570K.

This is way over budget. I will put a list together when I get home.

The best chance for being able to upgrade in a couple years is to wait a bit for Intel's haswell to be released (rumored for around the end of may beginning of june). Haswell will be socket 1150 so current socket 1155 motherboards won't work.

Total: $1,033ish

Notice I did not put a case on here so that you can choose your own. You have about 100$ left on budget to choose one.

If you need to squeeze more money out of the budget we can go with a cheaper GPU.

Do you have a monitor/keyboard/mouse? If not then we need to get a cheaper GPU.

Let me know so that I can adjust accordingly.

Also, do you want it really quiet or does it not matter. If it doesn't matter keep the stock CPU cooler, if it does then we can get a different cooler for the CPU.

Oh, and do you need an operating system?

Water cooling is great, but you will be spending more money.

Amazon is a great place to get parts too.

Don't forget to pick out a case! I didn't pick one out for you because I think that the aesthetics are up to you.

Depends on how good you are for overclocking. I love playing Starcraft 2, but I am not nearly good enough to overclock anything lol. If you are super epic at the game, go for it.

I would build it alone if I were you, it is the experience of a lifetime. Also, there is no end of help on this forum, everyone here can help you build.
