High-End Gaming PC ($1000)

I am looking for a custom built $1000 gaming PC...I want it to run next-gen games, like BF4, Titanfall, CoD Ghosts...etc.

I'd also use it for video recording and rendering, so I'd need quite a bit of RAM.Is there anyway I could get a gaming PC this capable with my budget? If not, what's the closest I could hit....

Personally would like 16GB Ram DDR3...And a 2TB hard drive...

Please help me out here, thanks!

  1. Okay, I recommend getting 8 gigs of RAM and a tb hard drive first and then adding another hard drive and more ram down the road. You can swap out the i5 for an fx 8320 and get a 770 instead, but a lot of people love intel so I included it in the build. I myself would go with the 770 and the fx 8320.Both builds have an amazing PSU that is quite overkill but PSUs are very important. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/28Ggl

    It's not that a lot of people "love Intel". It's that statistically - every benchmark after benchmark Intel puts up far better numbers than the FX-8350 does. Sure the FX overclocks better but the numbers for Intel don't lie. That PSU is a solid choice as it's a rebranded Seasonic unit.

    Don't get me wrong I like using intel CPU's, but for this high end gaming rig I went one level up on the GPU and one level down on the cpu. If he had an unlimited budget of course I would have gone with Intel's flagship CPU, but he wanted a 1000 dollar build. Also, having used an i5 3570k in my main rig and now an fx 8320 overlooked to 4.5 ghz I can tell you there is no tangible performance increase. (The reason i moved the i5 was that my brother wanted an intel build for his gaming pc so we switched motherboards and Cpu's and he gave me 100 bucks)

    Would this run all I want? And, it's all right if I'd add the Hard Drive space later...not an issue. But the ram, is that really all I'd need to run newer games on high performance?
    I'm not sure if the fx 8320 would lower my performance any? Since it's cheaper, and you say they're both fairly good I'd go with that. I just want to know, since I'd have about 40 dollars to spare with that build, is there anything I could stock up on that would increase my gaming by just a bit? I also like the Case, really darn sexy!! Thanks again for the help....
  5. 8 gigs is more than enough most games utilize 4 gigs at the most. 40 dollars could get you a 770 instead of an r9 280x but they are equal in almost everything. Spend that money on GAMES!!!
  6. Thank you for your help...! :)
  7. But, wouldn't this be a cheaper, and better pre-build (i7...etc.)??!

    Take a look, tell me what ya think!
  8. What about this, it seems crazy solid, and soo much cheaper.
    I apologize for dragging this on, but I just I should give pre-built a chance...

  11. Stop posting on old threads. But...Those computer suck. The gt 630 will bottleneck the i7 3770. If you want a high end machine than don't go with prebuilt, they will build a 2000 dollar computer around a 20 dollar PSU and then blame you when it catches on fire. Here is the final build idea for you. It will run games ultra at 60 fps. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2in7U
