Terrible build, for $20 more the CPU/motherboard you could get an i5-2500K + Z68.

Either wait for BD or go with Intel.

Going from HD 57xx series to GTX 550 Ti isn't much of an upgrade. Save for a better video card.

The 2 most important things for gaming are the CPU and the video card. Don't skimp on those. If you want to go with AMD wait a couple of days, BD is coming out supposedly.

I would consider a i5-2500k build with at least a 560Ti video card.

Im trying to stay under 700 but i can go up to 1k$

AMD bulldozer.

If you want to put it together ASAP get the i5-2500K from Intel and something like this motherboard.

Actually you could go with the i5-2400 + the motherboard from above and it would also be much faster than the 1100T.

Either way spend more on the video card, I'd suggest a GTX 460/HD6850 at least.

AMD FX retails in a week. It's already available for preorder at several places.
