First time building a gaming PC I am wanting it to be around $900-1000 and would be for gaming and recording gameplay

Hello all, I am looking to build my first gaming PC. I have watched many videos on how to put the parts together and it does not seem that hard. But what the hard part is, is picking the parts. I am not at all up to date which graphics card and which motherboard is best; so I am wondering if the wonderful people of Tomshardware can help me out? I am in need to a system that will allow me to play video games at very high or ultra settings around $800-1000 if that is possible. I would also be using Fraps to record my gameplay. I would also be heavily multitasking (again playing games, recording, and also recording my voice at the same time). I am in need of a good gaming PC for around this cost, but I am unsure which parts are best to use. Please can someone help me out?

  2. Awesome, thanks a lot logainofhades! I was just wondering, there wouldn't be any problems installing a wifi adaptor into the motherboard such as: would there? Thanks again!
  3. You shouldn't have any problem with it. It will have to be installed in the bottom slot, as the middle slot will be covered by the graphics card.
