hi guys. im building a pc for the first time and i have about $750 to $1000 to spend on it. What would be the best setup to get the biggest value for my money and at the same time not compromise on performance? AMD vs Intel is also a question of mine. Thanks for the help.

AMD got it right in my books. Very solid build for the money. Might ought to check out a GTX 770 though. Good luck.
