$1300 Gaming pc build

What I have in mind right now;
Also to note, prices are from MSY, however it is not my proffered store at the moment.

===========================
Approximate Purchase Date: In about two weeks

Budget Range: $1300

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, movies.

Are you buying a monitor: no

Parts to Upgrade: CPU, GPU, PSU, RAM, case, motherboard
Do you need to buy OS: no

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: none

Location: Melbourne, Australia

Parts Preferences: Reliability is high in my list.

Overclocking: Maybe in the future

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

Additional Comments: I am completely new to this, this will be my first pc build and I want to be able to understand the value and quality of my parts. This build will be aimed at gaming mostly, I want it to be able to run games like Battlefield 4, GTA V, Crysis 2 & 3 and many games like those at minimum or average of 60FPS all at max or close to max settings, at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 of course.

I may over-clock in the future but really have no clue at the moment as I am new to this stuff.

I just want parts that are good in value and reliable and work well.

Thanks! :)

    I wuda done a 770 if I thot it would make budget down in Australia and you should squeeze one in if you can. But I did size the PSU for the addition of a 2nd card (would be $1328 or so here) and two 760s will toast a 770.

    But still....two 770s is even better. :)
  2. 760 for gaming?

    760 for gaming?
    Get a 770, a bit more expensive but gaming is mostly about your graphic card..
  4. I agree a 770 is a better card but I don't think he can meet $1300 budget down in Australia with a 770.

    A 760 gives 80 % of the performance of a 770.... and original thought was..... get another one come Xmas and ya performance is 150% of a 770.

    The only game that comes below 30 fps in techpowerup's testing is Crysis 3 at 28 fps and 770 doesn't do much better @ 34 fps for 770)
  5. what about hd 7950/70
