Approximate Purchase Date: 1 Month

Budget Range: $1000 MAX, Prefer $800ish unless there's a massive diffrence in performance/future proof before rebates.
Only really want a 500gb hdd, could go with 1tb but no not really needed, would like to include a SSD in the build, size not important.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Leauge of Legends, WoW, Youtube, Basic Video editing with Vegas, Streaming movies

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No idea.. Preferably something from australia?

Country: Aussie

Parts Preferences: No preference, Simply want the best, reliable build for my $

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: I honestly have no idea what this is.

Additional Comments: I Honestly know next to nothing when it comes to computers, i just enjoy using them, when it comes to Hardware im basically useless apart from putting it together, i want the computer to be as future proof as it can be without compromising reliability or busting my budget

As for finding price parts, this has been really useful. Though its not perfect and may miss a website. Just take my suggested part and paste it into the search bar with your state, it'l figure out the cheapest place to get it.

HDD: 1Tb Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 64Mb. ~$95
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 60Gb. ~$80-100 (prices on this vary quite wildly)
CPU: i5 3570k. ~$250
Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Extreme4. ~$150
Case: HAF 912. ~$100
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8Gb: ~$65
PSU: Silverstone Strider 600W. ~$100
GPU: Radeon 6870. ~$160
CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. $39

With all my guesstimate quotes, this will cost you $1059. Probably can reduce the price by using the search engine I linked to.

This is a decent gaming rig, will power what you have listed up there no problem.
You may have to factor in a 64bit windows, which an OEM of Home Premium go's for about $95.

For LoL, your really not gonna need much graphics power. You could get high settings on your ivy bridge integrated graphics. Not sure about WoW.
I agree with the list above this post, thats a nice collection of stuff. Maybe instead of the vertex 3 you could get the agility 3, almost the same speed and cheaper. Also maybe look at radeon 7000 series and geforce 600 series instead of the 6870.
