Custom Gaming PC Build $1000 Budget

Hello everyone!

I am looking to custom build a gaming PC and I have a $1000 budget. I have no preferences as far as AMD/Intel or nVidia/ATI goes. The only thing I really want is a 30GB SSD for the OS install. So I was wondering if I could get some assistance in this. I have already put together a build on Newegg, but I did it kind of fast and I think with some help I could get a much better system.

There's the link to the build I put together.

Thanks in advance,
Adam

  1. Your link doesn't work for other people. You could probably use this build that I put together for another person.



    Just add an SSD of your choice. I don't like Intel or Sandforce SSDs at the moment and suggest a Crucial m4.
  2. Ok! I went in and created a build based off the one you posted!
