Looking for a little help here on building a new computer.
My budget is $1000-$1500, and can be more if needed.
I would need a monitor for this set up as well. One that would run in 1920/1080 res
I'd like to use this computer for gaming and have it be future proof. I mainly play WoW, Sc2, Diablo 3, League of legends,Skyrim, and CoD Black Ops2. I'd like to maintain maximum fps(60 for me) while playing in max settings.
I'm still debating on going with ATI / AMD, or Nvidia / Intel. Any assistance in that would be helpful.
I want 1 SSD, for my OS, and my games to run on, and 1TB Hard Drive for storage.
I'm going to be buying a Windows 7 OS in this budget as well.
Thank you so much for your help in advance.

Edit: "I'd like to use this case if possible"

well i can tell you now that anything outside of antec, bitfenix, corsair, cooler master, fractal, lian li, nzxt, and silverstone would most likely be sub-par or crap

you can easily max out all the games you listed with a single video card. if you want a option to upgrade to a dual video card setup, i provided that with the 750w psu. if you are not going to do it, i will switch it out for something less powerful

dont waste your time with futureproofing. its impossible
