I am in need of assistance. I recently decided to build a new PC, but i have no idea how to start. I have a $1200 spending limit, and I need the best gaming rig that my money can buy. It has to include a monitor, a keyboard and mouse, windows 7, and the tower itself. I need the rig to handle games like Bioshock infinite, skyrim, minecraft, Saints row the third, GTA, and the like, ALL at max settings. I would prefer AMD, but if intel is cheaper/better, then I'll take it! also would prefer water cooling, blue lighting (if at all possible)and 16gb of gaming ram, a white case with window, as well as at least 2tb of HDD space. Please, guys, Help a fellow gamer out?

It all looks super nice, though I'd prefer a a 1080p monitor, keyboard, and mouse were included, but still rad! What would the max fps be for a high end game like skyrim of infinite?

those 2 actually aren't too stressful, 60+ on high graphics.
