Hello, I'm looking to build a Gaming desktop since my laptop is on it's last legs [Motherboard is screwed]
It's gonna be my first time building a gaming desktop, my budget is around $1000 preferrably under though.

Needs everything, Monitor, Peripherals except speakers since i already have those.

Games i plan to play: BF3, Skyrim, Anno 2070, League of Legends and hopefully Crysis 3

Resolution: I'm not really picky on these but i can settle for 1600x900.

I don't also plan on overclocking.

I think it is also worth noting that i don't live in the US, I live in the Philippines so prices maybe higher or lower but i'm just trying to get a base on what i should be getting.

I searched quite a bit and came up with these

CPU: Intel Core i5 3.2Ghz Quad Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Case: Raidmax ATX-248NWU (Black/Blue) ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair Builder 600W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer

I can't decide between these GPU's

MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card

XFX Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card

I still need a Monitor + Peripherals and maybe some CPU Fans ?
