Post Building first gaming computer//$1000 budget

Trying to build my first computer. My budgets around $1000. The computer will pretty much be solely used for gaming. I need everything except a monitor mouse and keyboard for right now. So please and thankyou to anyone who puts a rig together for me. EDIT: don't need an OS either

Default Re: Anyone see any room for improvements?

Looks alright just try to get essentially the same components in combos and save a hundred bucks or so for a little better components. I'd suggest a better case, for one. Look for a reputable full tower.
Just an example build:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Your VGA card looks pretty good, and your hard drive is great. Although I would also recommend getting a CPU cooler as well.

Get an artic freezer pro v2, Will cool that chip adequately, even if your doing a mild overclock.
