Help me build my first Gaming PC ($1000 budget)

I'm going to buy my first rig from newegg and build it with a approximately a $1000 budget. This includes the PC it self, monitor, keyboard&mouse, Windows 7, a cheap cd/dvd burner of some sort, and all the required cables that I need.

I already have the keyboard, mouse, monitor, computer case, and windows 7 ready to go.

Those items totaled to about $396.95. If you can help me find cheaper items for around the same quality, that would be great! Here's what I found:


I don't know if you can build a good gaming PC for $600, so if you can help me get some money back from those accessories, that'd be nice. Also, do the required cables come with the case and what not? Like power cables, pc-to-monitor cables, etc? If not, could someone link me to all the required cables I need to make everything work.

alright, now to the specs. I'm not a hardcore PC gamer, that's why i'm only using a $1000 budget for everything. I mainly play blizzard games like WoW, SC2, Diablo, etc. But I do play other games occasionally but I save FPS's for my console. I was kinda wanting to get BF3 for the pc, but I don't know if a $600 pc could run BF3. If I have to go over the $1000 limit by a couple hundred dollars, that will be fine by me.

This is where you guys come in: The specs. Help me out, please&thank you.
