Hello,

I finally decided to build my first desktop computer. I have a maximum of $1000 dlls to spend not including the monitor and O.S. I will be using my HDTV as a monitor.

I would like to be able to play games like flight simulator with highest graphics possible, also i occasionally edit some videos of my GoPro using Sony Vegas, so i would like to be able to render the videos much faster. Other than that i don't put to much heavy load on my current PC.

Please help me build the best PC under $1000

Thanks!

OMG! You're still thinking about this new PC 3 years, 3 months, 15 days later??! How confusing can this be, it's been 171 weeks, 1203 days, 28,872 hours, or 1,732,320 minutes! Holy shit, dude!

Core i5 always. Unless you're doing some CPU intensive tasks, anything beyond a Core i5 is overkill.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H 129.99
Okay.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 $40
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 OC 3GB GDDR5 289.99
Seagate Barracuda 1TB $75
Corsair TX650 $90
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus $29

Okay.

Also what about the Dell XPS 8500
Well it would be good, but the GPU is something left to be a little desired. And the SSD is probably a cache drive.
