Cool Looking to build a new pc

My budget is oh id say 1,000 maybe a bit more. Id like to get everything from tigerdirect.com So far i found a case.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...943&CatId=1510 would this be a good case?


Id like to go with amd as far as the processor. So ideas on a video card fans power supply motherboard would be great. I really want something bad ass. I could very well pick things out my self but there are just to many choices.

No one can give you a valid answer without knowing just exactly what you are going to use the system for. Is it for an HTPC (most likely not with that case), for casual gaming or high-end gaming, home office work, just internet surfing, internet streaming? Your specs are completely dependent on the usage. If all you do is surf the internet, bad ass is a waste of money.

Isilvest is right, it's hard to equip the machine you want without knowing your primary use for it. I mean for 1000 dollars you could get a great AMD quad core system, 8-16 gigs of ram, and loads of storage, with a discrete GPU.

Or you could get a light weight gaming system.

I assume you don't know how to put your own together? If not, this will serve your needs nicely. 8 gigs of ram, and a quad core i5 2500k.

2tb of hard drive space, and a mainstream graphics card.



edit:

Actually this one right here is better suited to your needs, it matches all your criteria as well.

A good place to start would be Tom's Hardware website. They have charts showing performance for cpu's and video cards and even memory that will give you an idea of what you'll need for the games you want to play. From there, you can check out NewEgg's site for feedback (reviews) on the components you want. A little (or better a lot) of research will help you get exactly what you need. There are a lot of factors to consider when buying components. For instance, your case is a full tower with a bottom PSU. You need to make sure all of your cables for the PSU and drives will be long enough to reach the top of the case. When choosing a motherboard, make sure it has all of the features you will need for your purposes. Come back when you find some components and others will be glad to offer opinions.

1000 is a very big budget. You can still get a top notch setup for much less.
