You'll want a better power suppy than 350w. AMD recommends at least 500W for a 7870.

i would suggest a i5 3570k + a z77 board.

It's always good to have the option to OC. And 3570k is the BEST CPU to get for over clocking, pretty much the best chip you can buy for gaming

Keep in mind that he wants a monitor included in the 1000 dollars. Or at least that's what it seems like with his initial list.
