Hello,
So i am building a PC. I want to be able to play all games at ultra and have a decent gaming PC that can stay at the high-end for awhile.

Some things i am looking for

Top out graphics on every modern game

I will not be doing any video rendering, or using more than one monitor. Maybe 2 a times.

Basically i am building a comp. specifially for gaming only.

I would like to invest in an SSD, but then again my budget is $1000.

Can you guys construct a hypothetical computer that contains the best price to performance hardware, keeping in mind my uses for the PC. I would like to have a powerful PC a little bit over/under $1000.

I will be chiming in with feedback, THanks.

If you have this budget I would recommend skipping the ssd, it isn't really necessary and going with a mobo and cpu that can overclock, you will certainly see the results, try this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/v9SA

If they want to run all modern games at the top graphics, I would recommend overclocking. And i have a ssd for windows 7 and the boot time isn't really much quicker so I just cant see spending the money on it.

you see a much bigger impact on your system from going HDD to SSD while you dont see a big as of a difference by overclocking your CPU.

+1 to thebigtroll

but the times i have seen overclocking do work is when you start doing SLI/CFX or else you will see some bottlenecking
