You're going to have trouble hitting any high settings with a video card like that. When it comes to processor, that should be okay, but i dont know a lot about AMD processors. 8gb of ram is more than enough to compliment the rest of your parts.

Perhaps try getting a videocard for about 100-150$ (a 2gb model would be nice) and you should be good to go.

I would maybe recommend a Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 2GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121642

If gaming is your priority, then a decent video card should be too.

what games whould this card play on high as in the one i choose
 
You will be fine. Also, iSpecialTime, a 2gb 7770 would be useless unless he has multiple monitors. More than 1gb vram doesn't make a difference at all until you get to a 7870+ or if you have multiple monitors. There will be no difference at all between a 1gb 7770 and a 2gb 7770

no, all it does is increase the speed in which games can load, but once the game is running, it hardly does anything.

If you plan on downloading a lot of games, perhaps a larger HDD for the same price would be good, but its up to you

No, a SSD is more of a luxury than a necessity. I would drop the SSD and add that towards a better GPU. Perhaps a HD 7870?

[Edit]
Didn't notice that you didn't have a HDD listed. Do you already have a HDD or is this an entirely new build? I would drop the SSD in favor of a bigger HDD. A 500gb or 1TB drive running at 7200rpm will do the trick.

+1 to this. If gaming is your primary focus, then you video card should be too!

The Sapphire Vapor X is one of the best. It offers an excellent cooling solution.

And just to be clear, your budget is $1000 and you need an operating system and monitor included in the build, correct?

You could easily squeeze in a SSD or even get a HD 7950.

If you much prefer Intel, try this...

I would personally go with the intel build, add the HD 7950 and ditch the SSD altogether. I much prefer raw performance and higher FPS over mere loading times.

It's not that the mobo you picked out was bad (it's actually pretty good; one of the best), it's just way too expensive. A cheaper board will more than serve your needs.

Alright, I revised the builds with newegg links only. They are still under the $1000 budget.

If you need to lower the price, drop the 1TB HDD in favor of a 500gb drive.
