I'm looking for help for a good build for my first gaming PC

Approximate Purchase Date: Before October 2013

Budget Range: Budget 1000-1400$ After shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Purely for gaming

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: All (Starting from scratch)

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg in preference, but anything reliable will do the job (CANADIAN WEBSITES)

Location: Quebec - Canada

Parts Preferences: Good i5 cpu

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe in future

Your Monitor Resolution: No monitor but 1280x1024 or higher.

Additional Comments: I'll be playing mainly FPS games, would like PC to last at least 2 years before upgrading.

Thanks in advance to all people who give me tips :)
