The Xeon 1230 V2 is the equivelent of the Core i7 3770k, but cheaper. This way you can put more money into the graphics card. I suggest going for a HD 7970 OC/GHZ. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... You also get three games for free this way. m 0 l Best solution zared619 a b 4 Gaming September 12, 2013 6:03:39 AM This comes just a bit over budget, but I think it is about as good as you can get for $1000 PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.99 @ Amazon) Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Pro3 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($94.99 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($63.00 @ Newegg) Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($68.88 @ Amazon) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card ($399.99 @ Newegg) Case: Rosewill REDBONE ATX Mid Tower Case ($38.24 @ Amazon) Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($59.99 @ Newegg) Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer ($16.99 @ Newegg) Total: $1007.06 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
