$1000 gaming build?

Hello i was wondering if i could have some advice for good parts to a gaming computer for around $1000. i will go over 1$1000 if i need to.

Here is what I have so far:
processor: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7073161&Sku=I69-2500K
RAM: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1749425&Sku=C13-5720%20B
HardDrive: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7281716&CatId=2459
Video Card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7303441&CatId=3669
motherboard: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7325818&CatId=6978
CD Drive: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6024192&CatId=4509

I think that everything would work together and i still need a case. Also i was wondering if there is a better graphics card or RAM. If there is anything that might work better for a good price please let me know. i do not need speakers, keyboard, mouse, or monitor. Thanks!

  1. sorry i forgot to add that i live in the us and i prefer to use Tigerdirect but if there is a website with a better deal please let me know.
  2. You'll need a power supply. Corsair TX 650 would be fine for a single GPU. What resolution is your monitor? Can you wait for z77 and Ivy Bridge later this month? Do you already have an operating system?
  3. my moniter resolution is 1920 x 1080. i can wait for z77 and ivy bridge an i do not have an operating system i was looking at windows 7 professional but i dont really know the difference between that and ultimate. Thanks for responding!

  5. The difference between pro and ultimate ia that ultimate has language packs and some security function.

    Ultimate is not worth buying.

    If you gust gonna game the get of with home premium.

    Buy new windows 8 cd when it will be released.
  6. thank you very much. this is the first computer i would build so i dont know much about overclocking, do you think it is worth it?
