Gaming Computer for around 1,000, this good??

I have been trying to make a gaming computer and i think i got it down...for the most part. I will most likely be using this on a 20"- 32" TV so hdmi on motherboard is necessary. I will be playing All types of games: WOW, Battlefield 3, CSS, TF2, Skyrim, Borderlands 2. Preferably on Max settings

If anyone has ANY suggestions please feel free to respond with the modifications.

  1. If I were you I would get

    6950 1GB instead of 560. More powerful card, and with no real-world difference at 1920x1080 res with the 2GB model

    XFX HD-695X-ZNDC Radeon HD 6950 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

    PSU is overkill. 650W is more than enough!

    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply

    For storage I would go with the classic best seller Spinpoint F3 1TB

    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    and finally I would save some money, by buying a cheaper but still high quality case like Antec One Hundred

    Antec One Hundred Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  2. Check out the $850 build here:
    That should give you $150 which should be good enough for OS and peripherals. I've played CSS and BC2 with a crap $25 Logitech wireless keyboard and HP $10 mouse for the last few years and its done me fine so. I think $25 per thing is pretty good amount. Just my opinion though.
  3. Alright, i have switched the the slots you posted and i believe they are a better as well. The case, however, im not sure about. In the $850 build they recommend the Haf 922 for the airflow.

    I am not real concerned about looks so the Antec one hundred case, do you think it would have enough airflow for 10+ hours of gaming? (obviously an exxageration, but that is what im looking for)
  4. If it fits on your budget get the Haf 922
  5. alright, thanks for your help
  6. The HAF 912 and 922 both would be valid options for airflow. Just make sure the 922 fits your budget, I put the 912 to fit for lower budgets.
