please check my build above... that's my budget $1000 (actually I'm over the budget by $31)...
that's the best I could do.. already got a keyboard and a mouse...
is it GREAT enough to play current and upcoming games? without lags or problems? with high FPS?
read 660ti is great for gaming at full hd resolution
thank you

that's bad, thought it's a great build I'm just a newbie by the way and it's my first built... so be gentle guys :) 

that's the best I can do terms of budget $1000 including monitor (full hd) and OS, its for the soul purpose for gaming on ultra settings in current and upcoming games..

If your kind enough to guide me a built without going overboard with the budget? that would be great and would be highly much appreciated..

okay I have already read it and thank you for that save me atleast $90 I guess, start downloading now with torrent...

unfortunately ASUS Monitor's are not available in my country or it's hard to find one, I'm from the Philippines by the way forgot to mention it.. and that BENQ monitor is said to be great? according to them of course..

I have upgrade a little my parts here it is please try to check it, base on Why_me suggestion and put little extra on the budget for $1200.. and the Black and Blue color scheme is great hehehe.. I'll just still stick with my BenQ RL2450HT for now because I want a 24" monitor..

dude, 1000$ is like 45k php right? I'll be frank. You'd be short if you really push that GTX 660 Ti and it's not yet available in the Philippines unless you want to shop online and have it shipped (which is something i do not recommend)

http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=18896271
http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=18896186

that's 15k php. i5-3450 is around 8.5k, a z77 motherboard is around 6-7k. You might be able to build the system unit but I doubt you would still have money for your monitor. Go with samsung lcd monitors if possible. Also, I recommend this motherboard

http://www.tipidpc.com/viewitem.php?iid=19173615

Excellent OC board compared to its gigabyte and asrock counterpart. (better power phase and 2x pcie 3.0)
lastly, i wouldn't rely on pc part picker if I were you. Prices there are totally different from prices in the Philippines (like 15-25% different in most cases).

Tipid PC is the cheapest source in our country compared to villman and PC stores in malls. I recommend you shop there for your build. :)

Well...there is hardly any noticeable difference between 23.5, 23.6 and 24"

my recommendations:

*Samsung S24B350HL
*LG EB2442T-BN
*ViewSonic VA2448m-LED
*BenQ GW2450
