Gaming Rig Help!

Hello everyone! I'm trying to build myself a nice computer. I had one picked out on cyberpowerpc, but my friend informed me I could get what I need for much less. My question is, could you guys put together a pc for me? I need enough to run everything smoothly, and I intend on using this pc for playing Team Fortress 2, and Minecraft at high quality, and recording with FRAPS at high FPS. I also would like to have something that will give me enough memory for storing high quality recordings. It would also be nice if I could have enough power to download and upload things quickly, along with being able to play any other games I'd want to play in the future. Summary: Please put together a pc I can play games with on the highest settings, and record with high FPS. My budget is $1,000. Anything below that, obviously, would be great. Anything above it, as long as it's not above 1,500, is not welcome, but is workable.

    If you don't need the OS, that's $100 you save, the monitor if you don't need one will save you $137. KB/M I'll leave to you, pick what you like, even the case can be changed if you want something cheaper. I can't really go lower because then I'm getting out of my comfort zone.

    Don't need a monitor. Need a KB. Need an OS.
