Didn't read all of your post yet, but I skimmed for what was most important: Laptop or Desktop? Laptop you won't be able to build one for under $1,000...Desktop is possible but I wouldn't know the best stuff to get.

Edit: I think Target has $60 off the latest NVidia card. Not sure if the deal is still going. I'll check CAG.

Edit 2: NM, it was with Guild Wars 2 and ended on 9/1

For video cards, you'll want to go with a nVidia GTX 6 series card instead of the power hungry ATI cards. I would advise the GTX 670 personally. Its cheap and relativley new.

Go for a 3rd Generation i7 processor.

Those will be the money eaters of your budget.

As for motherboards, any ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard is generally considered to be good quality.

A good motherboard for what you need.

I mentioned NVidia before because, like Booned said, they are the best. The latest NVidia is insanely impressive. I've been seeing performance demos of it using Borderlands 2 and it is fantastic. Really outshines anything possible on consoles currently.

Edit: Awesome, when looking for those videos, found this: http://www.geforce.com/landing-page/...-borderlands-2

Looks like you can get Borderlands 2 for free when you buy any GTX 660 or higher.

Edit 2: Found the video:

Holy shit, those NVIDIA cards are expensive. I was hoping for something in the $199-299.99 range. Now, I'm not sure. Same with the motherboard. I had no idea they would be so expensive. I was looking at an Asus motherboard at Compusa for $89.99 which looked alright. Again, now I'm doubting it. Which processors are better? AMD or Intel?

You can go with the 5 Series video cards, but you probably wont be getting ultra settings on Skyrim.

The i5's and i7's are far better than anything AMD has to offer at the moment.

Okay, so judging by your suggestions, I've narrowed processors down to two.

Intel Core i5-2320 BX80623I52320 Processor - Quad Core, 6MB L3 Cache, 1MB L2 Cache, 3.0 GHz (3.3 GHz Max Turbo), Socket H2 (LGA1155), 95W, Fan - 189.99

or

Intel Core i7-2600K BX80623I72600K Unlocked Processor - Quad Core, 8MB L3 Cache, 1MB L2 Cache, 3.40 GHz (3.80 GHz Max Turbo), Socket H2 (LGA1155), 95W, Fan - 299.99

As for as video/gfx cards and motherboards go, I'm still debating. I don't care for overclocking, however, so I'm not interested in something that can overclock.
