Hello I want to build a gaming computer. I will look at videos on how to build the computer its self but I have no idea on what parts to choose. I want to be able to play minecraft, battlefield 3, guild wars 2 and record. I would like to spend around 1000 dollars because after shipping and handling and taxes it will be much higher. I need everything, mouse keyboard and monitor. Thanks Can you use this site to build it? http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/parts/partlist/
