Gaming PC for 1000$ - Need help with parts.

Hello,

I'm going to be buying a PC with a 1000$ budget, It will mostly be meant for gaming, school work (Programming) and video editing.

I'm looking towards playing some of the newest games like CoD black ops, Crysis 3.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks,

~Casper

  3. So you DO need a monitor and keyboard/mouse?
