Default Help building a PC for under $1000?

Hello guys my name is tehreview and soon i will be buying a new gaming pc to replace my HP Pavillion a6610n desktop pc.

this will be my first build ever so any tips on how to put it together or anything i should be careful of please tell me!

so anyway i play PC games such as League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Battlefield 3 (my pc at the moment cannot handle this on the lowest settings), MW3, and warcraft III...

so anyways in a week or two i will have $1000 saved up and i was going to buy a new gaming PC with this.

i would put a list together myself but i dont trust myself to put all the correct components together

Anyways thanks in advance!!! :P

What i would like in this build...

A mobo & PSU with SLI/Crossfire capabilities

an intel Processor

preferably a Nvidia GFX but doesnt have to be.

also a mobo thats size ATX with a ATX case
