$900-$1000 gaming build: I'm new to this

Approximate Purchase Date: Next few weeks

Budget Range: $900-$1000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming mostly, school work, watching movies.

Parts Not Required: I have a 500GB hdd and a dvd drive from my 4 year old computer. I also have a copy of windows 7 and a monitor.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: doesn't really matter.

Overclocking: Probably, but I've never done it before.

SLI or Crossfire: no (maybe far down the road)

Monitor Resolution: Not sure, 1920 by something (sorry)

Additional Comments: I'm probably going to play mmos such as SWTOR. I will probably also be playing games like Battlefield 3. Also I'm not sure whether or not to get a ssd. It won't help with gaming right? Idk if I have room in my budget atm for it.


I was thinking these parts, but they are definitely subject to change:

CPU: Intel i5
GPU: Radeon hd 6950
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB <--- 2 of these

Thanks so much :)
