Gaming Computer advice

I am a novice when it comes to purchasing components for my new gaming computer. This is going to be for the up and coming Star Wars The Old Republic, the recommended specs haven't been released. I am looking to spend between $1200-1400.

I have a case, Cooler Master HAF 932 already. I am really interested in AMD and Radeon products. Also I would like a SSD for my operating system. I hope you all can steer me in the right direction on what to buy.


Approximate Purchase Date:Late Feb
Budget Range: $1200-1400
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Watching/editing videos, surfing
Parts Not Required: Mouse and Keyboard
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg, TigerDirect
Country of Origin: USA
Parts Preferences: None, a wireless adapter will be needed though
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
