I know nothing about PCs (I just switched from being a console player) but I want to build a gaming one.

My budget is around $1000-1100. Since this is a board specifically for discussing things like this, you guys must be pretty good.

So basically, can you build me a great gaming PC? Preferably with pcpartspicker.com.

Remember, I'm not so good with the PC jargon so all I really want is a good build and confirmation from everyone else that it is indeed the best for my money.

Do you need a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and OS?

I'm connecting it to my TV so I don't need a monitor. I do, however, need a wireless gaming keyboard and mouse. And I do need an OS. Probably Microsoft, as it can run all the games.

This should be a good starting point for you. You can, then, SLi 760s down the line.

Nice build, SLI means two graphics cards.

Use 2 graphics cards in SLi which will be as fast as a Titan for half the price.

So I can buy a second graphics card and use it with the one he picked out in the build?

He is me... and yes. A single 760 (like that build) should be great for now, but once games start becoming more demanding you can add another 760 for cheap.

Yeah sorry, I meant you.

And that price is really pushing it. I can afford it but would getting Windows 7 make the price go down a little? I heard that 8 isn't even that good anyway.
