Solved $1000 Gaming Build. Need advice on parts, buying ASAP. Tags: Gaming Monitors Systems Last response: October 3, 2013 12:23 AM in Systems Share Ally053 October 2, 2013 10:30:04 PM Want a gaming computer, I have put together a list of parts and would like advice on if this will work, so I can go ahead and purchase, or if some adjustments need to be made. Also would like advice on if there are areas i'm spending more money than I need to, (i.e. cheaper parts that work just as well) or areas where I perhaps need to invest more money.

Your graphics card should be the most expensive and high end part of your build for gaming.. you should get like a GTX 770 if you can, or 760 to respect budget constrains. I would recommend the 770 since the price/performances for this card are very good. Non reference card like MSI, Asus, EVGA are very good. Maybe you will have to make some sacrifices if you want to fit a good gaming card in your 1000$ budget, but keep the 3570 CPU it is very good. Share Ally053 October 3, 2013 12:23:02 AM Thanks ImPain! Switched out the video card for the GTX 760 and have ordered everything. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
