New gaming pc build $1000 budget

Hello, I am building a new gaming PC and I need some guidance. I want it to be able to play SCII at preferably ultra and by budget is between $1000-1200.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 1-2 weeks

BUDGET RANGE: $1000-$1200

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: n/a (need everything)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD/Intel (

OVERCLOCKING: Possibly

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: maybe if it provides more "bang for the buck"

MONITOR RESOLUTION: haven't picked one yet.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want it to be really quiet so I am willing to spend on a case that excels at silence, but I am not interested in liquid cooling. USB 3.0 would also be nice but it isn't a must. I would like to have the mobo have dual x16 if i were to crossfire/sli

Thanks for the help guys.
