Hi, i'd like some advise on a new build for a 1000$ gaming PC (budjet can be exceeded if needed). I'm starting from scratch so i need all the parts (monitor excluded). I'm looking for a PC that i can keep for 4-5 years. I'll probably buy the parts in one month on (i live in canada). I'd prefer intel based builds.

Any advice is welcome!

you could go with the i5 on th 1166 socket but personally i feel that it limits your expansion later on

the case i like because it has alot of air flow with the 23cm fans on the side and top so it will keep everything cool but you can go with a cheaper one

the power supply you can go cheaper too but it helps when you would like to get the 4890 in CF later on which will extend the life of the system even tho its a beast now

and the hard drive can be smaller to save money but if u need it its there
