Gaming Working PC/1000-1400 budget

Hi guys, I will be building a pc around 10 December (next month) but I dont know much about tech so please help.

My budget is around 1000-1400. No monitor, OS, keyboard, mouse and etc are needed.

****I want to focus on cost-efficiency and best value of what I will get for my new PC****

I will be using it for online MMORPG games like Final fantasy 14, Raiderz, Tera and Guildwars 2, and I want to be able to max these games and handle future MMORPG games as well.

Software for work: Microsoft office, SPSS, and maybe Web easy professional (Want to learn how to create a website).

What I think might be good for this build are I5 3570k + 7970 ghz edition, but really depend on what you think is best (value).

For storage, if the price of 2TB is not very different from 1 TB I think I will take it.

Thank you and sorry for my bad english

By the way 7970 Ghz edition is not available in Thailand yet T_T, but I hope it comes out soon. But just in case, is there any other best value alternatives? Should I get just get the non-ghz edition instead?

Eh, are you sure? Pretty sure the GHz is available everywhere by now.

Any sites we can use to check for parts and prices there?

Not yet in Thailand (but may be soon). I am thinking about buying one from Newegg but the guy who will build my PC said I will have to claim for the warranty by myself if the GPU is broken, and I don't know how to deal with the warranty things, so I am kinda want to buy from the local shop instead because it will cost time and money to ship back and forth to Newegg.

Newegg doesn't ship outside US and Canada.

So can you give me local store websites then?

I believe prices are cheaper and parts are more update in Australia, so if it were me I would buy the parts there.

You'll need to contact the manufacturer for the specific part about the warranty though, but I'm sure it'll work. You'll be paying for shipping.

Not necessarily cheaper, prices are inflated quite a bit more down south (Typically we pay around 15% more for graphics cards, the Matrix 7970 for example is 689 here, and even a reference 670 from galaxy is like $400.

I think it's still more expensive in Indonesia. I could be wrong though.

7970 GHz is the best high-end card in terms of price : performance, so yeah.

Would you like recommendations now or are you gonna come back here when your date of purchase is near?
