This is what I am looking for:
I plan on using this to most games on ultra etc.
My budget is 1000 USD-1200 USD after shipping/taxes
I plan on building this computer end of May
I would need a screen, a keyboard, and OS
I will be purchasing the parts in the US and I do have a Microcenter available
I will be reusing the case, the screen, keyboard.
I might be overclocking down the line but right now I do not feel confident enough to.
A window is my only requirement
I do not have an reusable OS
I would like the Case to be 100 max because I want most of the money to go into the tower
Thanks! :D

Amazing build with a gtx 780
Just a little over budget.

That was looking pretty decent until I got to the Motherboard. Two Problems, 1 ) it is mATX and is going to be cramped with the stuff onboard and a wate to use one in a mid tower. 2) It is a Biostar and pretty near if not the bottom of the barrel for Motherboards. I do know someone that uses them and has had no issues, but I have seen far too many that have.

I know its a low end mobo.
But ive used this and was quite satisified.
I suggested this because, it was the good enough for the price.
If you want a better one, try this

My dad uses this mobo and its damn good (y)

Best solution

Sorry! This one ;) 

This one is good and hopefully it is close enough to his budget. If not he can drop back to a i5 4670k and save some. he will only be giving up Hyperthreading for the most part.

I don't know how good the motherboard is?

With a mid tower case, you want an ATX Motherboard. The one that he recommended is an mATX which is smaller and things wil get crowed on there. As for BioStar, I don't recommend them, but I know of some that have used them without any problems.
