Build based on Intel or AMD processor?

Have a preference between AMD or nVidia GPU?

What screen size you considering?

That's pretty expensive for a gaming build. What games are you playing? You can probably cut that down to $600 - $800 easily.

Well.... in order for you to go for a better and hence more expensive GPU you will have to cut back on other parts :)
