http://amzn.to/VLpEqM - Corsair Enthusiast 650-Watt - PSU
http://amzn.to/UX7UIl - Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GhZ - CPU

http://amzn.to/11h0pQN - NZXT Guardian Case

If you are more of a Radeon guy for a graphics card get a 7970 instead of 670 (gives better performance btw):

About the cables you should get all of them included with the components.
If you dont like the NZXT get a different case like Cooler master HAF 912 or something...

This is my build and it works pretty good.

Hope this helped, Tom

What's the primary use for this PC and where do you plan to buy from? And do you have monitor / keyboard / mouse / OS or not?

$1300 is a very good budget, but important questions:

Do you need an OS?

Do you need a monitor?

What else do you need that you want to be in that $1300?

What other tasks are you going to be using this for besides gaming?

Are you interested in overclocking your CPU?

Here's my suggested list:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LhZP

This build focuses on using quality parts that can be used in multiple builds, and has the tools to be very good at almost any PC job. It assumes you have your own peripherals (monitor, keyboard, etc.) and are not interested in overclocking, but leaves it open should you want to try it in the future.

As for going wireless, thats easy. You can buy a $20-$40 USB stick and instantly turn any PC into a wireless PC. Or you could pick out an internal card, but that isn't my area expertise.

Yes i need an OS.

I dont have a monitor, but the 1300$ are only for the desktop.

The pc will be for gaming.

I am selling a very good custom built computer right now, its around that price maybe a lil bit lower, it runs every single game smoothly, like cod battle field 3 in ultra settings at 50 fps, counter strike 101 fps league of legends at 130 fps team fortress 2 at 300 fps, tell me in a pm if you are interested, i can give you the spects from the system and you can search the parts yourself to make sure you know my price is fair and good.
