Gaminc PC Build - will it all work together?

I wanted to know if all these parts will work together to become a gaming PC. I want to lay most games at Ultra/SUper High settings. My maximum Budget is 1000 dollars if you want to suggest upgrades.

    These are few better motherboards i can find for you Haswell is intel tech and AM3+ is for AMD CPUs.
    keep this in mind when your selecting the parts. :D

    Also Try to Use

    instead of WD CB drive.Seagate is bit better and cheaper then WD drive or find a WD Black one that is much better then seagate.

    remember to click "pick as a solution" tab at the bottom of the post you think is a best suggestion.That will help others to make quick selection.
  4. Well your processor won't fit n the motherboard. And you didn't list a case.

    If you can go $50 above budget:

    This can play games at high-ultra.
  5. Since this is for gaming you don't need 16GB of RAM either, get 8GB instead to save some money.

    That will work but dont expect to be playing games @ 1080p on ultra settings. Realchaos' build was better in that regard as he has a much stronger GPU in there.

    And again, for gaming you don't need 16GB of RAM.
  8. -You're using a locked processor with a motherboard that supports overclocking. You're either wasting too much money on the motherboard, or not spending enough on the processor.
    -16gb ram is overkill for games.
    -I would drop the SSD at this budget to upgrade the gpu.
    -Gigabyte cases are low quality.
    -A 7770 is out of place in this gaming build. It's more meant for ~$400 budget builds. In a gaming rig, you want to spend more on the gpu than the cpu as games are mostly gpu dependent.
