I am new to computer building etc. but i am interested in building myself a gaming pc that can run games like bf3/dayz/arma 3/crysis 3/ far cry 3 etc at max settings. so after doing some research here is what I came up with. I do have a few questions regarding this however
1. are all the parts compatible?
2. could i do alot better for the price?
3. are there parts which are well known to frequently break or malfunction?
4. what other parts do i need to build this pc?
5. what parts could i improve on that would be in the same price range?
6. does newegg or td offer free shipping occasionally?

For a build under 1k, you may want to think about intel. With an i5, something like this. If you are not in to overclocking you can save a little money on the cpu/mobo

8350 will kick the crap out of your i5 and my i7 :)  check it out. Also fo gpu grab a 7870 instead.

>not an ati fanboy. 7870'll do a little better, as will the 8350. If I could rebuild my 3770k+670 I'd go 7970 and 8350 :)  You can catch the 8350 on sale with a watercooling unit from amd for like 179.99. pretty badass imo.
