Title.
I'm looking to build a new computer and I'd like some pointers. No set price but I don't want to be spending over 4,000 dollars on it ;P
I'm looking for something that has a GTX 670 graphics card or something else. Just a really open question on building a PC.
I kind of want my price to be under 1,300... But like I said, I can bend with it: just want some smart advice on building a gaming PC

We need to know basically where you are/currency.
What components don't you need (monitor, operating system, keyboard, etc)
If you've got monitor, what's it's resolution.
Do you have any limitations on sites to use.
Do you want overclocking/SLi/Crossfire.

I mostly want a great-average build
My tops[for money] would probably be 1,500-2,000
I have basically all I need, aside from a tower. I have a Monitor, Speakers, Keyboard and Mouse, all the barebones.
I don't really have a limitation on sites to use, pretty open as this would be my first homebuild
and I've only heard of overclocking/SLi/Crossfire, never actually tried it so I'd like an explanation but probably no
