Please help me with my gaming PC build? If possible please make the video card be an Asus MATRIX 7970Ghz or GTX770?

Hey guys! I want to build a computer, but I am not sure what parts to pick (I know about CPU's and all that stuff just don't know what parts I should pick)
And I was wondering if someone could give me a gaming build with the Asus Matrix 7970 or the GTX770 thats $1350 or under? I am using the Newegg App and I will be gaming and recording with Fraps. By the Way, if possible can the Case have a side window panel? (Minecraft and maybe Counter-Strike Source at 1080P are the games I will be recording) Thanks for helping me with my build! Budget also counts for the Monitor to. And please no Windows 8! I am also using newegg.ca for my parts. Thanks guys! I will unfollow this in a week from now and see all the suggestions and choose the cheapest and best one you guys give me!

  3. Why you so into the 7970?

    No 7970, if you can bear that.

    Room for your input before I do more.
  6. Alright thanks!

    ok here is your system without Monitor (researching Monitor)

    has 8 G ram and no SSD , the point here is tha you CAN add later and SSD and additional Ram , so it is better now to hae the GTX 770 and in few weeks when money comes you get the extra Ram and SSD

    8G is enough.

    remember if you get an SSD to choose only Samsung 840 pro it is the best and dont go for non "pro" .

    I am looking for Monitor now

    btw , dont change that motherboard ever it is the best around and has special ofer -30$ with cpu , has super onboard sound and got 10/10 in reviews.
