Build Your Own Gaming PC

What is a good custom built gaming pc configuration for under $1000?

I'm looking to build my own gaming computer but am trying to save some money but I still want something that is high performance. Is there any thing that you would specifically recommend such as motherboards, cpu, video cards, etc?

  1. Invest the most money on a good graphics card. Focus on clock speed and DDR3 on the card. You do not need an i7 system for gaming (you could but its too expensive), maybe a nice Core 2 Duo or a Core 2 Quad Q9550.

  2. you can bet on good perfomance on a budget just do some homework first I run a Intel extrem board core 2 quad @2.66 ghz processor with 4 gigs of 10666 ram and a nvidia 9600gtx graphic card 1gig ram and silvania 22 inch monitor i put together for about $900 bucks it runs great all over and it has the sli support if i want to go bigger the only regret i have is i wish id or used a msi,evga, board .all around the same price though I think its important to go with what you will be happy with. check newegg or tiger direct for the best deals

  3. Ok build one on your own and save some money.I am giving you the specifications but assuming that you already have a screen and operating system

    This configuration comes around your price range but is excluding the monitor and OS.

    If you meant screen and OS also just mail me back and i'll make adjustments accordingly to this setup.
