Default Gaming PC for under $1,000

I have been looking around newegg.ca for some computer parts.
My problem is i dont what motherboard with be best for computer cases.

Parts i have takin from my old PC, Harddrive 1TB, 6 GB of ram and the DVD drive.

I was wondering if someone could post me the best computer parts i would need to run BF4 and other games.

I also dont have any plans to overclock it.

Lol i also forgot to format the harddrive b4 i pulled it from the old computer.

I can only spend $1,000 but if i can get it cheaper that would be great.

Ps, this is my first build.

Would you need monitor, mouse, KB, and OS?

The ram... I really cant tell if what it is. All it says on the stick is ( 2GB 2Rx8 PC2-6400u-666-12-E3

Nope i have a monitor KB and mouse.

The harddrive is also SATA.
The old computer is a prebuild HP.

The Ram is DDR2 and won't work with the mobo from above

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - 70.00
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAO

will you need a windows OS? The old one on the hard drive will not work

I agree with previous mentioned parts besides a few things. You said you won't be overclocking so getting a 4670k and Z87 is a bit much. You could do with these if you wanted. And I don't agree with the pricing on the PSU, so I recommend the Seasonic instead.

I would also add an SSD in the mix since you have a little extra budget.
