I am looking to buy a gaming PC with a budget around 1 thousand dollars AUSD. I would preferabley have a GTX 670 in the PC , or something close to that, an i.5 Processor to save money, 1TB of storage and 8 to 16GB or memory. No monitor required , and a Windows 7 64bit Home Premium included. If someone could help or completely design a PC for me with this components , that would be greatly appreciated.

I see that this is above your budget by around $200, but you could try getting a cheaper case and also waiting for the 760 or 760ti to be released, as these will most likely be cheaper than the 670 and just as powerful.

I also realise that 650w is overkill for this system, but I could not find a 550w PSU on the Australian PCpartpicker. However, if you take a look around, any 80+ Bronze PSU that is 550w or over will be sufficient, especially from brands such as Corsair, Seasonic and XFX.

Overclocking won't increase gaming performance by any more than a few fps, depending on the game.

Hmm, I might purchase this set , but I may also wait for the 760 as sophie said , but so far this seems like a good set-up to me. I have had my gaming PC for a while but I haven't built one before, so would this set-up last for 5 years plus or so, since my PC at the moment has lasted around 5 years and it would be good to have this set-up last that long.

Depend on what we saw with GTX770 and GTX780, GTX760/760ti will most likely be rebranded GTX660ti/670 GPUs with maybe a bit lower price tag and that's it.

Well, I will probably get the 670 2GB , so thanks guys , this is a huge help, but just another question, what would my best bet be for a cheaper PC with a powerful graphics card, maybe $800 mark, to run games like ArmA and Battlefield reasonably well ?

Hm, I'll have to think on this , would it be worth the extra 200 for the other setup or would the 800 dollar one be fine ?

That 200$ can get you around 20% more gaming performance. Better multi-tasking performance, too. So the decision is still yours.
