Default Looking to build a gaming rig

Hey guys, I'm looking to build a gaming rig for under $1000 AUD, if anyone could advise me on how I would go about this, that'd be great. Thanks

PS: I need at least 8 GB of RAM due to my love of minecraft. Also I would love a 64 bit OS if we're going to include that in the build costs. Don't worry, you don't have to include it if you don't want to, I can set money aside.

Cheers,
Luke

Umm, I can't use newegg because it doesn't ship to Australia, however I can use Amazon, and any other sites that do ship to Australia.

Newegg does have an Aus option, but last time I checked that out there weren't many parts available yet. You don't have any Aus sites to use? Think I remember Mwave was one....maybe. I can't really remember

Ideally I'd use an SSD for the OS, and a separate drive for installation of programs. But unfortunately I don't think I can afford both XD OS Would probably be Windows, although I might dual boot windows and Kali Linux
