Help building my first gaming rig

The PC vs Console thread really got me going (although, I've been wanting to do this for some time) I want to build a nice gaming rig that I can use to play some PC exclusives on as well as not having to worry about it being slow as hell compared to my POS laptop.

What I want -

1. Must be able to run graphics at med/high settings. (770 card?)
2. I'd like to have good storage for movies/music (I don't know the advantages/differences of an SSD/HDD.
3. I'd like to have an HDMI port so I can move it into my living room on the big screen.
4. I do need a monitor. Undecided whether or not I want to run a dual/tri monitor setup yet.
5. I still burn CD's and Dvds. Will need a drive that supports both.
6. 8 GB of Ram at least with options to upgrade to 16gb in the future.

To sum It up I want a Rig that can do it all with little to no issues speed wise. I have a budget of around $1000, which is pretty flexible.

I also like pretty things. So I'm not afraid to spend a little more on a nicer case. Am a big fan of the Cooler Master Stryker case, I love the cases with the windows in the side with LEDS.

If anybody would like to help me I would greatly appreciate it. I just want to be apart of the PC master race.



EDIT:

This is build I am going with, unless I find good deals on better components.

Well, the PSU is one of the pieces of a computer you DO NOT want to skimp on. A 550W is like the bare minimum recommended PSU for a 770.

SSD is a luxury item. It's your money and computer but I'd drop the SSD and get it later, reduce the ram because because 16GB is pretty overkill for gaming, especially when you are only buying 2 sticks with an option to upgrade to 32GB (which will never be needed for the life of this computer for gaming), and take the money saved to get a better PSU.

Gotcha. I'll take all of that into consideration. I have about another month before I'm able to do this, so lots of tweaking and changes can happen between now and then.

A $1K budget with Black Friday and Cyber Monday looming. You can get whatever you want. Don't listen to these people.

Actually dude you want waaay too much. Get a cheaper GPU, a 3rd gen i7 would be less than a 4th gen i5. You really need to think cheaper and upgrade later. You can get an HD Radeon 7770 for $100 which is fine. 16 GB is way too much. 8 is adequate. You're aiming too high. Leave yourself room in the budget.

If you're not going to microcenter for the cpu+mobo combo, you're doing it wrong.

You can cut that price down dramatically.

16 gigs of ram is just overkill right now, 8 should be plenty.

Same thing with the video card. Go with a GTX660, which should be plenty but half the price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...D=3938566&SID=

You're spending a ridiculous amount on case fans.

As for the Harddrive, why not a hybrid SSHD? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...81&ignorebbr=1

I'd chop that build to under 1k and save some money for some upgrades down the road instead.

Yeah I realized a 3rd gen i7 is more than what he plans on getting.

Why in the world are 4th gen all in ones more if the processors themselves cost less than the 3rd gen?

You would be correct. Intel has been completely slaying AMD for awhile now, even on the budget level.

Just when I think I have it figured out with the FX-8350, I learn something new.

120 or 240 gig SSD main OS drive with a large platter strorage drive is the way to go for speed/storage/cost imo

make sure you get a good big case so that you can just keep replacing/upgrading etc into the future.

If you get an intel processor than you don't really need that much cooling. But AMD you need it in a bad way or expect overheating shut downs when you overclock.

To give you a slight idea on how bad it is right now.

AMD has really shit their pants since the Phenom era.

As a rule, I never suggest using a stock cooler unless someone is trying to do the absolute cheapest build. But yeah, the wattage that the newer AMD chips need is just ridiculous.
