Ok i have been trying to do research on pc parts and havent had enough time to thoroughly look through and pick parts to build a PC. My goal is to stay under $1000 if possible, I can bend a bit but want to stay as close that as possible.

I want a pc for gaming - any new games out there, at this point WOW, Diablo 3, Assassins Creed III.

I also want a monster multi-tasker, and I would like to be able to use it for media purposes and such.

I have included some parts that I have ran across and have not yet narrowed it down, but I am all ears....for suggestions and such.

I am trying to take advantage of the Black friday/holiday sales too of course. So I would like to order this in a couple days (assuming the sales are all still good.)

Please let me know if there are any questions. I am not picky either way on Intel vs AMD and - at this point would prefer to run win7/8

Thanks,

TWB1978
