New!! Need help picking parts for gaming PC?

I am building me very first gaming PC and was planning on buying parts from either amazon or newegg (Canadian websites for both)(not sure if it makes a difference) but I need help on buying parts don't know what to buy and what's good or bad? I'm only looking for the tower don't need help with monitor keyboard or mouse lol. But I'm also gonna be using wireless so I'm gonna need a part for that. Money isn't much of a problem but would like to keep it around $1000.00 but if it gets around 1500 that's alright and I want one where I could wait a year or more before upgrading.

    so is that everything i need i wont need a sound card, or a case fan or anything else? and how would you rate this build out of ten?
  3. The motherboard now have excellent sound.

    Cases come with enough fans.

    It's a mid tier pc. But as good as you'll get for $1000

    couple more questions lol.
    how much do top tier gaming pcs go for?
    and with a mid tier pc can i play games on top graphics?
    and if you would recommend someone a good monitor (aint too worried about price on this want good quality) what would you recommend?
  6. top tier say x79, i7 4960x, 16gb 2133, ssd, 2 x gtx 780ti's - $3000

    Monitor 1080p, 60hz, 1-2ms gtg eg Asus VE248H

    Find out what game settings to use by using Geforce Experience or put pc details into the game Game Debate screen and get expected fps.

    and do you got any answers for the other two questions?
  8. Depends on where you shop, and what other equipment you buy to compliment the power your pc is packing, you can have a kick ass desktop, but buy a monitor that looks Sweet, but if the refresh rate is low your bad ass desktop will be incapable of quality gaming cause your monitor can't process at your graphics cards current fps. So you need to make sure everything compliments your desktops power.

    My best suggestion is you go for a flat screen tv, with hdmi or pc hookups that are compatible with your system. A good sized flat screen is guaranteed to have excellent refresh rating for pc gaming which can be up too over 100hz, also including high res capabilities pretty standard, hdmi being probably the better input device in my opinion.

    Now this is what I got....which is definitely as good a gaming system as this guys here a
    'top tier say x79, i7 4960x, 16gb 2133, ssd, 2 x gtx 780ti's - $3000"


    And I spent 480 to build it. Which was a result of not relying on a single source for the kinda hardware I was looking for. If you really...really wanna get a great deal on a top tier gaming desktop. Don't be afraid to look for your parts is several distributers
