Default 800 to 1000 gaming PC

Hello,

I am looking to buy a PC that'll play games decently. I am playing world of tanks now on my inspiron 570 and it plays at the lowest settings and is a PITA. Would like to get something and I'm thinking a grand should be a good price point that should get me a solid PC. But there are a hell of a lot of choices so I'm looking for suggestions.

Thanks!

Is that £ or $?
And are you buying a pre-built system or building it yourself?

Sorry, forgot the $ sign - it's on dollars - I would be willing to go from $800 to $1200, monitor not included. Looking for a pre-built system.

if its purely for gaming, look at the I5 3570k and the 7850 hd.

But the rest looks good.

The 5770 To be fair, no not really. It'll play skyrim on mostly high settings with the HD pack installed with a little overclocking tho. I bought my second one for 40 pounds on eBay. Not sure what that is in dollars. Bout 65 I think. I wouldn't pay 85 tho.
