Gaming PC for under $1k, need help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So my friend is looking to build a computer and he's primarily going to use it for gaming with a budget of 1k.

I haven't been around and have no idea what the current best parts are since I last built my computer about 2/3 years ago.


Can anyone help me out? No accessories, just the computer.

Thanks!
