I want my computer to be able play high resolution video games a lot and it need to support game development software.

I will be getting an Intel i7-3770K CPU and an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 ATX Intel motherboard.

I've been told a Nvidia GPU is best for playing and developing games, but which kind? I don't know anything about GPU's. What's the best Nvidia to go with my CPU and MB?

I started with $1000. The CPU costs $329.99, the MB costs $127.98, my monitor costs $116.33, and my cooler costs $29.94. Now I'm down to $395.76. In addition to the GPU, I still have to buy a PSU and a drive.
(I know I will probably go over $1000), but try to recommend GPU's under $400.

You have been told wrong. The strongest GPU out now is the 7970 GHz made by AMD. It is a good 5-10% stronger than Nvidia's 680 before overclocking, and after it is about 15-20% stronger than that same nvidia card overclocked to its highest as well. If you want to get the strongest double PCB, again it is AMD's 7990 (Though it will need a 750w PSU).

Also don't get an i7 if it isn't too late. The i5-3570k is the best gaming cpu out.

He wants a NVIDIA GPU. He's not trying to Max out go all out on everything. he's only doing game design. either brand is fine.. but if he wants a NVIDIA GPU. don't tell him to switch because of what you think is best. and PS the new NVIDIA drivers put the 680 ahead again...
