1. Sorry if my english isnt 100% correct.
2. Im from Portugal

Prefered website: Amazon

I think its time to upgrade my old pc, so i decided to buy a new computer.

In a month top i will buy everything, and i have arround 1300$ to spend, if its under that price it would be awesome.

It will be a gaming pc, video editing and streaming but nothing major.

Parts needed: cpu (no preference on the brand), cpu cooler if needed, mobo, RAM's, GPU, 1 SSD, a case and a PSU.
I already have 2 monitors, optical drive and a HDD 500gb 7200 RPM.
Maybe overclocking the CPU.
Crossfire/SLI the GPU later on.

Thanks in advance for you patience

Hello,

See my site about building a gaming PC for under $1000. All products listed are from amazon, so it should help you. It will show you the parts required, and help you choose which ones to get.

Another option is to go to pcpartpicker.com, and it will have all the selections of parts you need and let you know of compatibility issues.

Everything is listed on Amazon, and will get you great overclocking capability, SLI capability, and maxed out gaming at 1080p easy :) 

The site above is ok, but those are all lower end components, wouldn't look at those with a $1,300 budget.

Definitely. The new Haswell Refresh solves the Haswell heat problems, and for the money, you can't beat the Hyper 212 EVO. Should get you to 4.2-4.4 pretty easy.
