    Basically I have $1000 to spend. I can go over a little if absolutely needed.

    I am not really sure what is best for what. What I do know is that I want to be able to run WoW, BF3, GW2 those are basically all I play/ Will play on computer for now. I don't care about what brand just as long as it all works well together and will give me a nice smooth gaming action.

    The only thing I am particular about is the case. Yes I want a good looking case preferably one that will glow blue.

    If you can put together a list of everything that I will need I will do the shopping online.

    I really appreciate your time and thank you for helping me out.

    Check out the maximum specification required for any games you want to play and/or see yourself playing, and then shop for part appropriately. If you come up with a list of parts you're looking to buy within budget, you'll gladly get advice on whether or not they will be compatible/if there are any stand-out better alternatives.

    A few basics involve checking that the parts you buy are compatible with your choice of motherboard in these areas:

    - CPU manufacturer
    - CPU socket
    - supported RAM amount
    - supported RAM speed(s)
