Exclamation Need help building CPU for gaming.

I am going to build (if i'm up to it) or just pay a pro to build it, well besides the point. I need help choosing the stuff. I dont want to bottleneck it, or anything like that. I need help chosing a motherboard, graphics card, cooling and anything else I am missing. Ill give links to stuff I have already chose, I have a $1000 limit. ------------- Processor : 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 Hard Drive : Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive Memory : Newegg.com - PNY XLR8 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD4096KD3-1600-X8 Sound Card : Newegg.com - ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card Tower : Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
I just want a motherboard and stuff that will fit everything. Also, the stuff I chose is pretty cheap, If you can make it alot better (up to $1000) that would be greaaaaaaat. I want to play GTA IV and other games on highest settings. Thanks!

Default Re: Need help building CPU for gaming.

just a couple things on it, go with WD black not green as it is faster also do you really need a sound card? Unless you have a full plug in sound system it is pretty useless
