Looking to build my first home gaming computer. I am looking for a complete list of all components possible, even the specific case. I am completely new to the building world and hardware itself for that matter; just looking for a summer project.

Budget: 800-1000 dollars

Things I don't need: Monitor, keyboard, mouse

Preferences: I would like to run three monitors (DVI, USB or VGA does not matter), wireless capabilities, runs cool and quiet

Side-Note: I have a 2 TB external drive



--Open to all suggestions and appreciate all feedback!

Thank you, but I was really looking for your monitor res really. If you plan on tri monitors at 1080p, it's going to be hard to find a GFX card that will fit your budget and still keep playable framerates. Do you do hardcore gaming?

I know this is very petty, but are there any wireless cards that will not work on this set up?


Any card with usb, PCI, PCI x1 or PCI-e x16 (not prefered) will work lol.
