Ready to build my first PC. Budget is $800-$1000

I can order parts as early as tomorrow. I saw this build from another topic and was wondering if it's worth going with. I could wait another week to get something better, but from my understanding, I could get something very nice for between $800 and $1000.

I'm looking to be able to run most games on high or very high within that budget if it's possible.

You should wait until the HD 9000 series is released (in mid October). By then, the prices of the rest of the parts will have lowered as well.

You're going to get flak for choosing and AMD processor.

Do you really need that much hard drive space?

Thats a good power supply but too expensive.

I don't really need 4 TB. I could get by with 2, maybe even 1. Yeah, I understand that Intel is much better. I was just browsing the latest topics for builds in my price range.

This is what I have but I updated the processor to Haswell.

If you don't need speakers or a keyboard you can disregard those and add an SSD. Also pick whatever case you want but the one I picked is very nice and on sale atm.

For your price range, you shouldn't be going with an AMD processor like others have said. A Haswell i5 is a much better, or an i7 if you need it.

I don't think you'll get any better than this ->

I can't believe you can get an Asus Monsterofa7970 for under $300 with rebate.
