First build - Gaming PC - Early January 2014 ($900 - $1000)

Hi, I am requesting information about a powerful gaming PC, I'd like to know what the community thinks. I don't have much knowledge however I can provide some guidelines. I'd like the machine to be quiet, I do not have a monitor or OS. Would prefer a 1980x1080 resolution. This could probably be changed. OS, I'd say Windows 7. Once again can be changed. I have reasonable space for the build. I live in Australia. The computer will be for video streaming to twitch, watching YouTube, heavy gaming, everyday tasks (made fast) eg. Schoolwork. This will be my first PC build, tell me what you think.

    If you want you can get a GTX 770 or 760, I'm focusing on graphics right now so, your choice.

    NOTE: With an original Windows, The Rig will cost you $1105 and more. You may want to get a pirated OS.
    All these parts are from Amazon.Com. This maybe called an excellent rig for almost all purposes. Now if you want to make it an all way heavy load PC, you've got to do a lot more in Software also. Enjoy.
