Default Looking for a Quad core PC

Hey guys I'm looking to upgrade up to a Quad core PC. I plan on using it mainly for gaming purposes so a good video card (around the 1GB range would be nice). My budget is around $1000, but its flexible. What do you think is the best out there for the money?

CPU: FX 4100 or better
Motherboard: 990fx AM3+
PSU: Corsair 600+W
GPU: Here you have quite a bit of choices, I prefer the HD 6850s or better OR HD 7850s or better. You can also go with the gtx 560 or better OR the gtx 660 or better
RAM: atleast 4gb

Buying Pre-built or building from scratch? You'll always get more for your money building yourself.
