Currently Im looking at a i7 3770- for future proof, A good motherboard with extra features like the asus maximus and sabertooth,and a NVIDIA Gpu, im looking at the 560 because im pretty sure it can max out starcraft 2.
CPU- i7 3770k or save $100 or so and grab i5 3570k which is still easily good enough for any game atm
GPU- GTX 670 or save $200 or so and grab a 560ti which will still easily max out SC2
Mobo- Asrock Extreme4 z77
Ram 8Gb of whatever ddr3 you like 1600mhz is the best value for money
SSD 64gb OCZ agility 3 or 4
HDD 1tb of whatever is cheap
PSU- XFX/Corsair/whatever 750w
Case- based on your taste
the $1000 range pc is about the best value for money imo
