I'm a noob at building my own pc, i'm a gamer in ps3, so im trying to switch to pc so i need help, any advice would be EXTREMELY helpful, since i dont know anything about this stuff.
the parts i used is mostly in ratings and reviews, however i don't know if they match
my budget is around $1,000 us dlls.
pproximate Purchase Date:
From this date and the end of this year (2012)
About 100$, but i'm not locked on the price. But somewhere near that would be great.
System Usage from Most to Least Important:
Exclusive for gaming.
Parts Not Required:
Mouse, keyboard, monitor, and OS, since my office have spare licenses.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
I don't have any preferred website, the easiest one would be better (amazon, newegg, etc...)
Mexico, but i plan to ship to US since i have a house there as well...
Yes, later on. Just for fun.
SLI or Crossfire:
Yes, later on. i want to keep adding stuff later.
FPS gamer, so fluidity/graphics is what I'm looking for, that's why im getting out of PS3 world.
This is my tentative setup:

Thanks for the response,
how is it compare the 670 vs 660 vs the 7950?
thanks for the comparison link, but i kinda new to this so i don't know what those numbers mean lol
It all depends on what game your playing. Nvidia cards do well on some games,and AMD cards on others. The numbers are Frames Per Second. The higher the number the better. 670, 7950, 660 ti...all good cards and more or less depends on your budget along with preference.
