Hello, my name is Elliott and I'm here today to des cuss a new project I'm doing. I'm going to be building my first computer. And I need help finding some parts like mother board, storage, Amd or intel, case, psu, the ssd, the heatsink, basically everything. My buget is 500-1000$s and I'm going to use it for some heavy gaming as I don't really enjoy playing ps3, or Xbox. I was going to buy alien ware m17x laptop or there high end desktop but heard you can build a computer for a lot cheaper and it still be the same basically. Now I'm more of that future type gamer so I like futuristic looking items. The theme color is going to be red and black, and I've bought some carbon fiber viynial that I use on building my Xbox 360 laptops. But ya if anyone can help me, I would like a full list if possible. And as I said I love to game. Can someone please help me?

I would get an i5, 7870 (7950 if it's on sale), and 8GB of RAM for your budget.

I believe the best budget gaming set up right now is something like

FX 6300 $140
Asrock 970 Extreme4 $105
2 x4 gig of 1600 MHz RAM rated for 1.5 volts or less $40
hard drive $90
dvd burner $17
radeon 7850 $180
Antec ONE case $55 [ even has front USB 3 ports ]
Corsair CX 600 watt psu $50 [ after rebate ]
win 7 [ or 8 ] 64 bit $100

$777
Newegg prices

That leaves you enough in a $1000 budget for Monitor , mouse keyboard and speakers

I wouldnt pay for the sabertooth unless you are adding another graphics card . It wont perform better than the asrock i suggested above

The water cooler is a bit basic . A good air cooler would work fine . But so would the stock cooler till you can afford to add one later

The GREEN hard drive is slow . Boot and loading times will be longer

DVD drives cost 17 - 18 dollars. Buy any one
