Hello, I'm trying to assemble my first small budget gaming rig (1000-1500 euros). And it's a little bit harder than I expected :D 
I think I need much help, do you have any tips for a newbie?
I think I found my CPU : Intel® Core™ i5-3570K Processor, I think it fits right in a medium gaming rig.
What's with GPUs? For what specs should I look? Know any good GPUs?
Any help would be much appreciated :D 
thanks in advance, and sorry for my grammar, English is not really my mother language :D

If you want an AMD GPU, go with the HD 7970. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I hope this helps; good luck!
