In Topic: $1000 Gaming budget!?!?

Okay, OP has been updated again. The Keyboard, monitor & mouse are not needed, but I'm going to need fans & some HDDs, so the price is pretty reflective of my final cost. Thoughts!!? How did I do!?!?

Any reason why you want to have a motherboard with wireless capability? Honestly if you are going to play online, would recommend wired. Would recommend a diff mobo as someone else said before.

Would skip the sound card.On board sound does a good job unless you are an audiophile..

None in particular, just thought it was better to have onboard. I could always install a sound card at a later date, I'll nix that. Now I just need to figure out my best choice on MB. I didn't wanna skimp on the CPU/MB either, everything else seems to be easily upgradable

It seems like price is no real object? I read $1000 and thought that'd meant that's the max, might be able to trim the fat for ya a bit on the build if you want. You have some great parts but a bit excessive for 1080P gaming IMHO.

I have the rig in my signature gaming fluidly at 2560x1600 for an example of what I mean.

That was before doing proper research, forgive me. Not totally about gaming, just want to be able to play comfortably for the foreseeable future. 1080p is just what I'm assuming is the "norm" currently, but I'd like to be able to participate once the resolution standard increases, so to speak
I was interested in the 5820 for its high level gaming & processing capabilities. I'm well aware that a decent build with that CPU is going to hover around $1700, so I'm comfortable in that neighborhood, but I'd love to save a few dollars without sacrificing to much quality/performance/value
The PRIMARY objective is to get a build up and running, "luxury" components can be added on at a later date
I saw the ASRock extreme 4 for about $175, but is it worth the savings compared to the MSI Gaming 7?

OP has been updated with my slightly more informed build.

What's your wireless router? Find out what the max speed it can go, and we can tell you what to look for.

I have an AC750 router, but an upgrade is not out of the question
