$1000 PC

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/skMK

First time using that site. So I want a $1000 PC. Gaming one. That price is $400 over what I want. Anyone can save me $400? :)

I kind of focused on a PC that would play BF3, thats what i am aiming for.

  1. Right off the bat the sound card isn't needed and you can drop the SSD (Intel SSDs are not good), and for the same price the Radeon 7870 is a better video card. You also can't pair a 2500K with a Z77 board as you lose PCI 3.0. And if you're not overclocking you could definitely shave some money off there.

    Maybe try something like this:

    Saved almost $500 there, then you can add monitor and whatever else you want.
  2. g-unit build is solid.I would recommend a 7950 or GTX 670 though.

    A 7950 wouldn't make that much of a dent in the budget - the 670 would though and the OP was about saving money.
