Building First Gaming computer. Need help.

Hi, I am building a computer for the first time. I want a gaming rig and also so I can stream on TwitchTv that I can play games to the max right now (BF3 on Ultra??), and that is upgradeable in the future.

I already bought the i7 3700K Ivy Bridge.

I need help with other components. I would like to spend under 1000, but I can increase my limit if it makes the difference. I have spent time looking on Newegg, but with all the brands, it can be overwhelming:

Motherboard (I heard Intel is not too good, and ASUS is good)
Graphics card (Leaning toward the Nvidia 670)
Keyboard (I already have a mouse)

Please let me know if there are great deals.

For my tower and PSU, is this a good combo or do you suggest something different:

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Steel structure with molded ABS plastic accent pieces ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Do I need anything else? Or anything i can get in the future?

  1. Hello Bogey157,
    You have bought really one heck of a CPU.Now you require is what are all the other components so lets start the hunt.

    This is a really good motherboard for your CPU as it supports many USB ports and also can support upto 32GB ram.

    Graphics Card:
    Spending around 450$ on graphics card would be foolish.I think You should get the Asus GTX 660ti which falls for 250$.In near future,you will also have an option to buy another one and make a monster out your PC.You can get two of them if you want for around 250X2=500$.

    Thats really a treat.You get 16GB Ram for just 42$.Grab it while you can its really fast(1866MHz) and it would occupy 2 of the memory slots so you would have another space to buy more 16GB of Ram.
    For PSU and Case,you buy that combo,that will be kind of best of both the worlds.

    Nice HDD with a fine operating speed and enough memory.If you need more,you can buy two of them

    This HDD is also nice with alot of space in it.
    If you need a SSD,then here you go...
    Don't spend too much money on SSD.This one is good enough to keep your computer work smoothly.

    Anything else you require,inform me. :D
