Please take note I took special care to not insult your intelligence despite the fact that I really, really wanted to.

There is a sub forum for this, if you absolutely must post it on the general discussion, where a large majority of the population turns into gibbering idiots when faced with a wall of technical information. A secondary idea is to compare prices to existing models, or come up with the "building it from scratch" price tag.

Hm, while I don't know what everything on this computer is, I do know that 8 gb DDR3 is about the best RAM you can get, and 600 power wat supply isnt bad. After poking around, I learned that, on average, 600 watts is the minimum requirement to run your graphics card; I would consider upgrading your power supply to ensure your computer runs everything efficiently. Thermaltake is a good power supply brand.

1 TB is a lot of memory for a computer. As long as you don't CONSTANTLY keep downloading things, you will never have to worry about space on your computer. I5's in general tend to be decent computers, but I wonder if it's worth 1000 dollars; that is a queston for someone else.

Hope I helped!

No.

Here is a list, for a high end gaming comp. DIY Price Tag - ~1300.00 USD If 1000 is the max,then u can switch out the mobo/cpu/ssd. I would recommend having an SSD though. It makes life 1000000000000000000000000000000000000 times better.
