Default Advice on building computers

Hey guys,this would be my first time building a computer. I would like to know if anyone knows of a good website in where I can get the parts and also what parts would be best to build a fast powerful gaming computer.

I would like to keep my budget not more than $1000

If America's, here's a good build. Just add in a case and it should amount to about 1000 dollars. For me, it'd be between the Cooler Master HAF 942 or 932. If you want to water cool your system now or down the line, 932 is setup more for that. But if you want to keep with the air cooled, the 942 has less openings meaning less dust getting in which is a problem with the 932...personal testimony. But here is my suggestions:

Newegg.com - ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
Newegg.com - MSI R6870 Twin Frozr II Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Newegg.com - ZALMAN CNPS10XEXTREME 120mm 2 Ball-Bearing CPU Cooler

Here are the links to the two cases I mentioned

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced Blue Edition RC-932-KKN3-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0, Black Interior and Four Blue LED Fans-1x 230mm front fan, 1x 230mm top fan, 1x 230mm side fan, and 1x 140mm rear fan

What water cooling system would be compatible with "ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS" ?

I'm going to overclock this custom computer

Thanks

A good air heatsink will give you all the cooling you need. Pretty much any AM3 compatible system is going to work with that board. AMD doesn't have that many choices in water cooling systems as Intel does. check the water cooling page
