I am new to the whole pc building thing and i'm looking to spend 1000$ on a new pc build. I already have windows, a display, mouse, keyboard etc, im just looking for components.

Approximate Purchase Date: About a month


Budget Range: 1000$, possible to go up to 1200 only if there is a significant performance boost


System Usage: Heavy gaming, graphicly intensive games to be played on full settings with most eye candy turned on, also for homework, browsing web, watching movies


Parts Not Required: OS, keyboard, mouse, speakers, display


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Buying from shop


Country of Origin: Indonesia (Same prices as rest of world)


Parts Preferences: No real prefrence


Overclocking: Probably not


SLI or Crossfire: Probably not


Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

I'm looking to play all the newest games (battlefield 4 etc.) in full 1080p ultra graphics with high frame rates and as much as possible eye candy turned on. I do not plan to overclock this pc. * gb of ram.

An ssd and an hdd would be ideal. If it is really nessisary and would be ideal, i would be willing to spend up to 1200 $ but preferably not.

Any advice and extra assisance for this first pc gaming build would be greatly appreaciated

Thanks for the help.

About advice on first build, there are many tutorials and videos on youtube about building pc's, and also follow motherboard manual instructions, everything there is very detailed and very easy to understand.

Thank you very much! Also, what benefits would say, a little bit more expensive motherboard or little bit more expensive power supply or little bit more expensive video card give me? And what benefits would an i5 4670k processor give me?

-Only benefits form the i5 4670k will be overclocking abilities and little bit more future prof. But still the i5 4570 is very good processor, and capable of multiple tasks
-For $30 more, you can get Z87 motherboard , if you plan in the future to buy unlocked processor.
-For $20 more, you can get XFX 750w 80+ Silver Semi Modular PSU, better than the 650w, since it has more power, and it is semi modular, better cable management and more future proof.
-About the video cards, there isn't much choice for $20-$30 more, they are almost the same.

Would the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card be worth the extra money? Rather than the one you have mentioned? And do you reccomend I overclock and get the better proccessor? And what are the advantages of more power? And what do you mean by buy an unlocked processor in the future? Sorry for all the questions! I am new to this. Thank you for your answer

-GTX770 and 7970 has almost the same performance. I would personally get R9 280X, but since the prices jumped on the AMD cards, now the better option is GTX770.
-If you plan to overclock, you will need to change the processor and the motherboard and get better cooling for your processor. In my opinion if you are new to overclocking, it can be unpleasant experience. Overclocked processors draw more power, heat up more, and will short their life cycle if not properly overclocked or cooled.
-Unlocked processor means that it can be overclocked. The letter ''K'' at the end of the processors nomenclature (for example i5 4670''K'') means that the processor is unlocked. While on the i5 4570 (you can see at the end there is no letter ''K") it means the processor is locked, and can't be overclocked.
