Need help building with assembly ($1000 budget) prefer before Cyber Monday ends


As the title says, I'm looking to buy a PC from (Cdn moneys). I wanted to take the route of buying individual parts and having them assemble it for me (worth to me the 50 bucks or whatever it costs). Unfortunately, I have no idea what I'm doing, so I don't even know what parts fit with what. Is anyone willing to help me sort this out? I don't need anything flashy like a case with lights or anything.

My budget is $1000 Canadian. Let me know if you have any questions... kudos and cookies for your help? :)

  1. Operating System?

    Can build a decent Z77 + i5-3570k + GTX760 system for about that much, but if you need to include the other stuff it is going to have much less performance.
  2. Hmm I would like Windows 7 didn't think about that.

    I don't need a monitor/keyboard/mouse. I'll revise the budget to $1075
