New Gaming PC build under $1000

Hi, So I have been having a lot of problems with my laptop lately and I figure, that maybe it's time for a new computer. I have been doing some research, but I just don't know what to buy. I want to build a computer that can run planetside 2 and mechwarrior at high or at least mid settings.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: School,Gaming,Web Browsing, and Watching you tube videos.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.com and Amazon.

Parts Preferences: what ever you think is best
Overclocking: No
SLI or Crossfire:No
Monitor Resolution: Whatever's best with the determined GPU

    That's actually a pretty good build. Only thing is you chose a Micro ATX MOBO, just curious as to why. But that PSU is a beast of a deal.

    The one thing I could say that is bad about that is windows 8
  12. @Drew chose he Micro-ATX to fit the budget
    @FlapJack Windows 8 is actually better from a gaming point of view as the OS uses less of System Resources

    It really sucks if you don't have a touch screen monitor :/, I have it on a laptop using a mouse is so much more time consuming
  14. no its not...once u get used to it its really fast...
