I know there's alot of threads on this, but I need help building a computer.

My GPU died and instead of replacing it I'm going to get a new PC. My budget is $800-$1000 and I plan on playing at 1920x1280. I'm leaning more towards AMD because it's more affordable. I was looking at the phenom x6, but I heard it isn't that great for gaming. I know a hexacore won't be able to utilize current games or who knows when, but I want this to last me a good while. I'm planning on adding a second graphics card later, so I would like a second PCIe slot. This computer is strictly for gaming.
