Gaming Build (including mouse, monitor, OS, speakers) $900-$1000


Dec 15, 2012
Well, Christmas is coming up, and I've been saving some cash lately. I need a gaming build for around 1k. The mouse, keyboard, OS, and speakers should be included. I'll be mostly gaming and doing school work on this new build. If you guys can give me some builds and show me the light, it'll be appriciated. The only part that I want to keep the same on the builds are either and i5 2500k or an i5 3570k. I will upgrade in the future. Merry Xmas, and God bless you all.
