My budget is $900-1000. My friend whipped me up two builds http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/tYyk and http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/uhro

Are any of them worth buying? Also keep in mind this is all in Canada

Both are good builds. idk about the GPU, I'm an NVIDIA guy, but both are solid gamers that will run all games at high settings. U won't reach ultra settings in the newest games (Crysis 3, Far Cry 3) but you'll get high settings in BO2 or BF3. I don't play MMO's, so i can't judge on them...

That is the K version of the i5 (with the unlocked multiplier). That version is only worth while if you plan to overclock the CPU, or if ur friend will do that for you, but ur CPU cooler will more than handle a modest OC.
