Hi everyone, I'm new here, heard that this forum offered great help, so I decided to join and seek some much-needed advice . This would be my virgin attempt at assembling my own desktop.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: The sooner the better
BUDGET RANGE: US$1000-1100
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Might be sticking with my current Compaq keyboard unless i have left over budget
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: No preference
PARTS PREFERENCES: No preference, but wouldn't mind having a nice, large monitor.
MONITOR RESOLUTION: Don't know much about this
I'm an about-average game user, so I don't need top-of-the-line processors/graphics or such. My main purpose for the desktop would be for it to run most games like COD, Warcraft, Sims3 smoothly without hiccup, and one that hopefully would be able to carry me into the next couple of years - service-wise.
I have not selected any parts yet, so if you'd like, you can recommend anything you'd think fits best to my needs. Thanks in advance for all the help!

The parts wouldn't conflict - generally people on here know what their talking about! gkay09's build is really good, and will result in a great gaming machine. The i5 processor is brand new this week and packs a good punch. The graphics card is also very powerful and will max all your games with ease. By building this yourself you're probably saving $1000 compared to a shop equivalent. The only thing I could think to add would be an aftermarket CPU cooler as this will make your CPU run cooler (duh!) as well as provide you with the possibility of overclocking should you desire.
As this is your first time building make sure you feel confident before you dive in. Building yourself is not hard, and can be very enjoyable (that's the true nerd in me speaking) but must be done with care!
If am not wrong, the hardware prices in Singapore are not costly as in other places...
So the above prices in USD, when converted to SGD should give be similar maybe just few $$ more as not counting in the combo discounts...
I found this info...well you must be aware of these places... http://www.best-singapore-vacation.com/3-best-places-to...
