Good 1000$ Gaming Pc Build?

Im looking to build my own computer for the first time and want to spend a maximum of 1000$ for the computer itself. Im close to saving up enough and I want to know your reccomendations. So far I have researched a lot and I was going to get the mid range build on this site http://www.build-gaming-computers.com/gaming-desktop-computer.html (scroll down until you see the mid range one.) Do you agree with this site? and if not what do you reccomend instead?

    Nice website thats helpful but...

    Is the GTX 770 that much more worth it? I mean I undestand you are trying to get the best build at the same price I listed but from what I saw the 770 is a lot more expensive and only gets about 4-5 more fps on some benchmarks.

    I'd say it is worth it. the 770 will max anything at 1080p while the 760 can't max big titles. it's only $70 more right now.

    Cool thanks also the motherboard seems a lot cheaper which kind of worries me... would a more expensive one be better for the price? (Kinda new to the pc gaming world) Also is there a difference between the EVGA geforce gtx 770 sc and the Nvidia geforce gtx 770? Or are they pretty much the same and which do you prefer?
  5. Alright some research I have decided that the Motherboard is fine and allows some flexibility for a better GPU but... should i be getting a EVGA gtx 770 sc or Nvidia gtx 770 also I changed the case to something I liked better appearence wise is that still going to work? Last but not least do I really need a SSD? Sure faster boot ups but how much can it increase performance if at all? These will probably be my final questions. After I figure out this I will make a final build choice and see if you agree! thank you so much you have been so helpful!

    I can vouch for the GTX 770 as I own the MSI 770 TF 2gb. I have my display at 1920x1080 and can max out everything except for AC4 because it's not still as optimised (lots of FPS drops).
  7. evga is just another brand of nvidia, msi, asus and evga are all good names, which ever makes you happy. Trust me, ssds are nice. I just put one in my system at the start of the year and not having a computer without one again. I hit the button, and by the time i'm settled into my seat the computer is ready to use.

    Also note that I havent decided about a SSD yet... I'll just have to see when I buy my PC parts and see if I want to spend that extra money. Thanks again!
