Hi guys Ive been lurking these boards for a while and now I think Im ready to build my very first gaming PC. I'm not sure where to start though, theres so many parts and I dont know what all i need. I have about $1000 to spend and id like to keep it pretty close. Ive heard that Intel was the best for gaming but can get expensive quick so alot of people use AMD since theyre more budget friendly. Now my friends and I all play on console and they said that I couldnt get a decent gaming computer for $1000 but after reading through these threads I think theyre wrong.
Anyways, sorry for rambling. Im wanting to get into PC gaming so I can play TES so I can mod. Id like something that could play WoW and the new elder scrolls online game when it comes out.
Approximate Purchase Date: Maybe this weekend if not the next weekend.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming and some web browsing
Are you buying a monitor: no
Do you need to buy OS: yes id like windows 8
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:it doesnt matter to me
Location: City, State/Region, Country - united states
Parts Preferences: by brand or type ive heard good things about AMD for budget builds but ill take what i can get with the money.

Additional Comments: id like a quiet pc if thats possible with my budget. for the case Ive looked at a few corsair models but id like something black and simple.
Thanks for the help everyone i really appreciat it.
