$1,000 dollar Gaming computer

Hey guys. I've been thinking about building a gaming computer for a while, and now I've finally got the funds and motivation to do it. Basically I want my system to run Battlefield 3 at high-ultra. I decided that the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked 1280 MB would get the job done (also with a tempting price).

budget: > $1,000

Use: Gaming

Parts not required: Keyboard, Mouse, Audio

Preferred websites: No preference

Country: U.S

Overclocking: yes, GPU is EVGA Geforce gtx 570

Parts Preferred: No preference

SLI/Crossfire: No

Moniter Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional comments: Bench marked BF3 High- Ultra 30-60 fps.

  1. If you fill this out we can better assist you: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

    However, the Radeon 7850 in most cases matches and in some cases beats the GTX 570 and is $100 cheaper.
  2. If you look at my post from a little bit back, I have a gaming rig for $925 that'll run it easy, but you might want to switch the GPU in it to a 7850 or a 7870 just so you have the extra bit of cash to afford an OEM copy of Windows 7.

    Case Rosewill chalenger only 50$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147153
