Hi all. First let me say that I really appreciate any help in this build. So what I would like is a gaming computer, most bang for the buck. My son and I normally play Arma and have Fallout IV on preorder, so those are the games to keep in mind. I also do not need speakers, monitor, or a mouse. Instead of a wireless internet setup, I would like a physical wired hookup. (Can't remember the name atm). Finally, I'm in the US, for $$ purposes. $1000-$1100 range

Thank you in advance, feel free to ask any questions that might be needed to complete the build.

I like this build, im guessing he plans to moderately overclock and add another GPU in the future?

The motherboard has wired Ethernet, so the expansion card isn't necessary unless OP would need more than 1 simultaneous operating connection. Otherwise, the list looks fabulous. Pretty much exactly the one I would have come up with.
