New PC build for Planetside 2

Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: 30 days

Budget Range: $900 - $1,000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, mostly Planetside 2 (CPU-intensive)

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Case, CPU, Mobo, GPU, RAM, power supply.

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Whatever doesn't require in-store pickup

Location: Central Illinois, USA

Additional Comments: Gaming, Intel CPU, one GPU. Air vs water cooling? Is water really worth it? I've had Coolermaster Evo 212 and had no problems with heat.
