1000$ Gaming PC Build

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

    I said a GTX 660TI is minimum, also I don't think i3 will work well on games
  5. 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.

    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.

  7. Welcome mate.

    AMD has PhysX too. Just not advanced PhysX.

    Thanks, for graphics Im still going to get a GTX 660 TI for a number of reasons, unless you have got another GTX model higher than 660 TI.

    Also Is this 2-way 3-way and 4-way SLI Ready?
