I'm currently looking for a Gaming PC including mouse, keyboard etc.
My Budget is $1000, so I cant get as far as other people but in my system I want a nVidia Card (GTX 660TI is minimum, but if you can fit a GTX 670 that would be Great!). I also want a Intel chip in here but AMD will do!

By The way I'm in Australia so websites like newegg will not work
Thanks

Does that include an OS and monitor?

Also, which games do you intend on playing?

A 7850 is on par with a 660.

An i3 is fine for gaming. Just not something you'd chose, if you had a big budget.

Your budget is pretty tight I'm afraid. However with no OS, you can squeeze in an i5!

An optical drive will add a little more. I think this would be a good start.

The 7850, like the 660, is a midrange GPU. So you'll get some good FPS on

at least medium settings in the games you intend to play I think.

Going with AMD:

The CPU isn't as powerful as an i5, but it's still pretty solid for such a budget.

This GPU is also nearly as good as a 660 Ti, but for less money.

If you are adamant about wanting a 660 Ti then it'll cost 1074$ in total.

This build is nice as it has an SLI/CF ready motherboard too.

Thanks Alot! I might be going the way of nVidia because of pysX and the nvidia Shield device

Welcome mate.

AMD has PhysX too. Just not advanced PhysX.
