Hello, a few months ago I posted 2 threads for a gaming PC, unfortunately my plans fell trough and I was not able to buy a computer.

So here is what I need, a good gaming PC for 1000$ with a monitor.

(More info)

Approximate Purchase Date: A few months.
Budget Range: 1000$, I really cannot go much over this budget.
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Surfing the web, Skype. That is all it will be used for.
Are you buying a monitor: Yes

I had a build but I am not an expert or anything with computers so I would appreciate if you could show me some possible builds.

Thanks.

Here you go. This will play almost anything on High to Ultra settings. How much did you want to spend on the monitor? This build only left about $150 for the monitor.

I was planning on a monitor around that price so all is well. Also, there is no OS but I can pick up a copy on Windows 7 for only 30 and it will still be in my budget of 1000$
Thanks alot for the help!

(EDIT: I was going through your Part list and realised, around 50$ was taken off the CPU because of a in-store pickup deal and I live no where near any of the stores, that puts my total at around 1030-1040$ I might be able to push that in the budget though. Also, something else I should of mentioned (sorry), I live in Canada, so some of these deal mights not work for me, do you think you could offer diferent advice on a build? If you can, that's great, if not, big thanks for taking to time to compile the first build.)
