I have no experience in bulding a pc from scratch, I know a little about gpus and stuff but thats it. My budget is 1000 bucks, I want a rig that can play all the latest games on high with good fps. I only need about 750gb of memory, a 1920x1080 display, a good gpu, about 8 gb of ram. The rest f the stuff I have no clue what to get. Please help, thanks:)

If you want to CrossFire later and overclock, here you go. Not sure if you need OS, keyboard/mouse.

No I know what mouse I want, not sure about keyboards though. Would that rig play bf3, csgo, blackops 2, etc? I will spend as much as I need to. Thanks guys.

YouTube search "Building a Computer video tutorial". Newegg has a couple of decent tutorials.
